Gaddafi's son, Saif still in prison in Libya

Contrary to the reports that Saif al-Islam, a son of the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, has been freed from prison. Military sources have revealed that he remains in the prison in western Libya where he has been held since the 2011 uprising that toppled his father.

Since his father's downfall, Saif has been held in Zintan, a mountainous western region, by one of the factions that began contending for power after Gaddafi was killed in 2011 and have now split the country into warring fiefdoms.

"We deny that Saif Islam has been released," the Zintan military source told Reuters.
