Tripoli - Libya's prosecutor general says late dictator Muammar Gaddafi's son and his spy chief have been charged with murder in relation to Libya's 2011 civil war.

Abdel-Qader Radwan said on Tuesday that the trial will start on 19 September in the capital on alleged crimes committed during Gaddafi's 42-year rule and during the eight-month civil war that deposed him. The defendants are former intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senoussi and Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, the only son of the former dictator who is in custody.

A militia is holding Seif al-Islam in the Libyan town of Zintan. International Criminal Court judges had ruled that Libya cannot give Seif al-Islam a fair trial and asked authorities to hand him over to The Hague.
