Trial of Qaddafi’s Son to Begin Today in Libya, Al Arabiya Says

Sept. 1 (Bloomberg) -- The trial of Saif al-Islam, the son of Libya’s late dictator, Muammar Qaddafi, is to begin today in a criminal court of the Libyan city of Zintan, Al Arabiya television reported.

Saif al-Islam will be charged with provoking the killing of Libyan protesters during the uprising last year that toppled Muammar Qaddafi and led to his death, according to the network.

Qaddafi’s son may be given the death penalty if he’s convicted, al-Arabiya said.
