The International Criminal Court has told Libyan authorities to surrender former dictator Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.

He is wanted by the permanent tribunal for crimes against humanity.

Gaddafi was arrested in November by rebel fighters in Libya, and has been held largely without access to the outside world. Libyan authorities say they plan to put him on trial.

However, in a written ruling published last night, judges at the court rejected a request by Libya to postpone handing over Gaddafi and urged them to “proceed immediately with the surrender”.
