Tripoli - Libya's interim rulers want the captured son of slain leader Muammar Gaddafi, Saif al-Islam, to stand trial in the country, a member of the ruling National Transitional Council said on Saturday.

"We trust the Libyan judiciary, and that there are all guarantees for a fair and impartial trial for him," Mohamed al-Alaqi, who holds the justice portfolio, told Libyan media.

Al-Alaqi said that he had spoken with International Criminal Court prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, and that they would discuss the issue during a visit by Moreno-Ocampo to Libya next week.
