AMSTERDAM Mon Aug 22, 2011 6:08am EDT

AMSTERDAM Aug 22 (Reuters) - The International Criminal Court said on Monday it was in talks with the Libyan rebels about the potential transfer of Saif al-Islam, the son of Libya's Muammar Gaddafi, to the war crimes court in The Hague.

"We are in discussions with the Libyan council about the surrender of Saif al-Islam," ICC official Fadi el-Abdallah said.

"It is simply too early to talk about details of those discussions or timeframes. The situation is not fully clear or stable in Tripoli so that might take some time." (Reporting by Aaron Gray-Block; editing by David Stamp)
