Tripoli - Libya's former intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court, has been arrested, an official in the National Transitional Council said on Sunday.

"Abdullah al-Senussi was arrested in Al-Guira region in the south of the country," the NTC official who declined to be identified told AFP, without providing details on when he was captured.

News of his capture came a day after Libya's new rulers also announced the arrest of ex-leader Muammar Gaddafi's son and one-time heir apparent Saif al-Islam, who also had been on the run for months.

The ICC issued warrants on June 27 against Saif al-Islam, Gaddafii and Senussi on charges of crimes against humanity in crushing anti-regime protests.

Gaddafi was killed on October 20 after being captured by rebels.
