Date set for Gaddafi's son trial

Libya's prosecutor general Abdel-Qader Radwan said the trial will start on September 19 in the capital Tripoli on alleged crimes committed during Gaddafi's 42-year rule and during the eight-month civil war that deposed him.
The defendants are former intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senoussi and Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, the only son of the former dictator who is in custody.
A militia is holding Saif al-Islam in the Libyan town of Zintan.
International Criminal Court judges had ruled that Libya cannot give Saif al-Islam a fair trial and asked authorities to hand him over to The Hague.
