The International Criminal Court is happy for Libya to try Muammar Gaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam, instead of sending him to the Hague.

That’s according to the ICC’s chief prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, who says Libya has the right to prosecute Saif al-Islam and Abdullah Senussi, the former Libyan intelligence chief.

Saif al-Islam was captured on Saturday in southern Libya. The ICC issued warrants against him, his father and Senussi on charges of crimes against humanity for the crackdown on anti-Gaddafi protesters.
