LONDON - An International Criminal Court (ICC) investigation of Muammar Gaddafi is not necessarily an obstacle to him leaving Libya to end its four-month-long crisis, a British minister said on Wednesday.

Some analysts have said that the decision by a war crimes prosecutor in The Hague last month to seek an arrest warrant for Gaddafi had given him an incentive to cling to power for fear that he could face prosecution if he left Libya.

"I understand (the) point on the ICC very clearly ... I don't think in reality it's an absolute bar to people moving," British Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt said when asked about the prospects of Gaddafi going into exile.
