NTC officials: Gadhafi son Mutassim caught in Sirte

MUTASSIM GADAHFI — NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER: Born in 1975, he was trained by Egyptian officers and is a career soldier and a doctor. In 2007, his father promoted him to head of the National Security Council and in April 2009 he met U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Washington. Suspected of attempting a coup, he was exiled to Egypt but was later pardoned and returned home. He was seen as Seif al-Islam's main rival for the succession.

TRIPOLI - Three officials representing Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) told Reuters on Wednesday that Moammar Gadhafi's son Mo'tassim was captured in Sirte on Tuesday, trying to escape the town in a car with a family.

He was taken to Benghazi on Wednesday morning where he was questioned, they said. They gave no further details.

The NTC officials, based in Sirte and Benghazi, declined to be named but have provided accurate information to Reuters before.

(Note by Editor: Till now NTC's officials have made similar claims proved to be false.)
