UNITED NATIONS - The International Criminal Court continues to receive information that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi might try to flee Libya with the help of mercenaries, the court's prosecutor said on Wednesday.

In the written text of a speech to the UN Security Council, ICC chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo also said he was investigating whether former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who died shortly after his capture by government forces last month, and his former spy chief ordered mass rapes.

"There are allegations of crimes committed by NATO forces, allegations of crimes committed by NTC-related forces ... as well as allegations of additional crimes committed by pro-Gaddafi forces," Ocampo said. "These allegations will be examined impartially and independently by the (prosecution)."
