NOUAKCHOTT - - Muammar Gaddafi's intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi, who was arrested in Mauritania last month and is sought by Libya, France and the International Criminal Court (ICC), is ill, Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz said on Sunday.

Libyan authorities are seeking the extradition of Gaddafi's former right-hand man, vying with Paris and the Hague-based ICC which also have legal cases against him.



Abdel Aziz said in an interview with the French TV5 station that Senussi, 62, already had health problems when he flew into Mauritania's capital Nouakchott in March using a false passport.

"His situation is stationary, it's not worrying," the Mauritanian president said. "We've had him examined by doctors, as soon as the justice system has finished with him, we'll take a decision," he added.
