Saif will stand trial in Tripoli

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, who was the presumed heir to the toppled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, will be moved to a Tripoli prison within two months and then face trial, the chairman of Libya's National Transitional Council, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, said yesterday.

The new Libyan leadership has also urged Niger to extradite another of Colonel Gaddafi's sons, Saadi.
