Gadhafi's son Saif being followed, Libyan transitional official says

Saif al-Islam Gadhafi - son of deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, who was killed in Libya Thursday - is still alive and is being followed by revolutionary fighters, a senior member of Libya's National Transitional Council said Friday.

"We know the area where he is, and for sure he'll be captured very soon," Mohammed Sayeh told CNN's Carol Costello.

Saif al-Islam Gadhafi is wanted by the International Criminal Court on suspicion of crimes against humanity.

Meanwhile, the United Nations has called for an investigation into Thursday's death of Moammar Gadhafi - who the NTC says was killed in crossfire between Gadhafi loyalists and the anti-Gadhafi forces who captured him near Sirte on Thursday - as questions lingered over the last moments of the late Libyan strongman's life.

"There seem to be four or five different versions of how he died," the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights said in a statement. "More details are needed to ascertain whether he was killed in the fighting or after his capture."

    All Americans should realize that Libya redeemed itself to us. How long can we be mad at a country in view of our own record and actions? This action was taken by the Europeans and we got dragged in this as a partner of NATO.

    The only crime Qaddafi committed was to advocate a United States of Africa. Yes this is what happened prior to this Arab Spring Uprising. The people of Libya have no idea what the Qaddafi regime protected them from. Libya is not a backwards country and has no homeless. Qaddafi gained power in a bloodless coup and kicked out the western powers stealing the resources. He then used the oil to build Libya knowing that few men had the internal strength to stand up to the western powers, he made Libya a monarchy and seeded his bloodline. Eccentric maybe, but brilliant and effective are true words of deeper meaning. Their Economy was not even impacted by this Global Recession.

    Well history moves on.
