Saif al-Islam Gaddafi had been captured by Libyan rebels but escaped, Interim President of the National Transitional Council Waheed Burshan told Al Jazeera on Tuesday.

"We don't understand what happened," he said of Islam's escape. "It is the inexperience of [our] fighters, it is just the way of the gullibility, if you will, of our youth.

"Remember, this is an uprising. We don't have that structured military guard," he explained.
