TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — The rebel commander in Tripoli says Moammar Gadhafi's son al-Saadi has called him to negotiate the terms of his own surrender.
The commander, Abdel Hakim Belhaj, spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday. Belhaj says al-Saadi first called him on Tuesday and asked whether his safety could be guaranteed. Belhaj says he told al-Saadi he would not be harmed but he would be treated according to the law.
Belhaj says al-Saadi called back again early Wednesday, but he missed the call.
