A vehicle carrying Britain's ambassador to Libya was attacked with rocket-propelled grenades yesterday in Benghazi, injuring two bodyguards. Meanwhile, a lawyer and interpreter for the International Criminal Court (ICC) face 45 days in detention in Libya while officials investigate their meeting with Muammar Gaddafi's captured son.
"We don't have any contact with them and we didn't receive any official indication or information by the Libyan authorities about the reasons or the circumstances of the detention or the conditions of the detention,” said Fadi El Abdallah, the Head of Public Affairs at the ICC. “So all what we know is that they were in Zintan to meet with Saif al-Islam Qadhafi. That's part of a mission that has been ordered by the ICC judges to ensure the respect of the rights of the defence in the case against Mr. Qadhafi."
