CAIRO - One of Muammar Gaddafi's sons has offered to surrender and join the movement which ousted his father if his security is assured, a Libyan military commander said in remarks broadcast by Al Jazeera International television on Wednesday.

Abdel Hakim Belhadj, the chief of anti-Gaddafi forces in Tripoli, said Gaddafi's son Saadi had contacted him offering to surrender and that he plans to follow up on the offer.

"Today I had a phone conversation with Gaddafi's son, Saadi, where he asked to be part of the revolution and to get guarantees to come back to his people and to Tripoli," according to an English voice-over of an interview conducted by Jazeera with Belhadj in Arabic.

"He hinted to us his whereabouts and we will be in contact with him to follow up on this matter," he added.
