TRIPOLI: The Libyan government says former leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Saadi, has been extradited from Niger and is now in custody in Tripoli.
Pictures posted on the internet showed him having his head and beard shaved.
Saadi Gaddafi, the former head of Libya’s football federation, fled after his father was killed in the 2011 revolution.
The 40-year-old is best known for a brief career in Italian football as well as his playboy lifestyle.
Saadi, one of Col Gaddafi’s seven sons, is accused of shooting protesters and other crimes committed during his father’s rule.
“The Libyan government received today Saadi Gaddafi and he arrived in Tripoli,” the Libyan government said in a statement early on Thursday.
