Judges from the International Criminal Court (ICC) will decide if former leader Muammar Qadhafi's son, Saif al-Islam, and the country's former intelligence chief, Abdullah Al Senoussi, can be tried in Libya.

Libyan authorities have asked that Saif and Senoussi be prosecuted in their country instead of being tried in Hague, where the Court is based, saying it was a matter of national pride.

Saif al-Islam was apprehended on Saturday, while Senoussi was arrested in the southern town of Sabha on Sunday.

ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, who is currently in Libya, said there is also the possibility for ICC judges to conduct the trial in Libya as per ICC rules.

He spoke to Reem Abaza.
