Hague court issues arrest warrant for Gaddafi

THE HAGUE, June 27 (Reuters) - The International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants on Monday for Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, his son Saif al-Islam and the country’s spy chief, Abdullah al-Senussi, on charges of crimes against humanity.

ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo had in May asked the court to issue arrest warrants for the “pre-determined” killing of protesters in Libya after the U.N. Security Council referred the issue to the court. (Reporting by Aaron Gray-Block; editing by Mark Heinrich)
