TRIPOLI, Libya, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, a son of the slain Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, is trying to broker his surrender, an interim government official said.

The younger Gadhafi, once considered a possible successor to his father, and Abdullah al-Senussi, the ousted dictator's former intelligence chief, want to surrender to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, Abdel Majid Mlegta, a senior military commander with the National Transitional Council, told Britain's The Daily Telegraph Wednesday.

"They are proposing a way to hand themselves over to The Hague. They feel that it is not safe for them to stay where they are or to go anywhere," Mlegta said.

An ICC spokesman and multiple diplomatic sources told the Telegraph they had no information to corroborate the surrender claim.

Both fugitives are believed to be hiding either in Libya's southern deserts or in a neighboring country.
