After early Monday's capture of Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam, opposition fighters negotiate with the ICC over his handover while another son, Khamis, leads a military force in Tripoli

Libyan rebels are negotiating with the International Criminal Court (ICC) to arrange the handover of Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam who was detained late on Sunday, al Arabiya TV reported on Monday without naming a source.

The ICC in June issued arrest warrants for Gaddafi, his son Saif and Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi on charges of crimes against humanity after the U.N. Security Council referred the Libyan situation to the court in February.

As the battle for Tripoli continues, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's son Khamis is leading a military force towards central Tripoli, Al Arabiya TV said on Monday, citing rebel sources.

The Dubai-based channel said the forces departed from Gaddafi's Bab al-Aziziya compound.
