UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday called on forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to stop fighting and allow a transition to power in the oil-producing North African state.

He added that all UN member states are obligated to comply with decisions of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which has issued arrest warrants for Gaddafi, his son Saif al-Islam and his intelligence chief.

The Libyan rebels, who say they have captured Saif al-Islam and two other sons of Gaddafi, have indicated they might want to try the trio in Libya instead of handing them over the ICC.
