Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam has been arrested along with several bodyguards in Libya.
The interim justice minister said he was detained near Obari in the south of the country. 
Saif al-Islam had been on the run since last month  when his father was killed as he tried to flee the city of Sirte. 
At the time, Saif was reported to have escaped to the south and was subsequently said to be in talks on surrending. The International Criminal Court wants to put him on trial for crimes against humanity.
