TRIPOLI - Libya's prime minister met war crimes prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo on Thursday and reassured him that Muammar Gaddafi's detained son is in good health and that his government is determined to give him a fair trial.

"I assure the world that Saif (al-Islam) is being given a humanitarian treatment with respect and according to human rights guidelines," Abdurrahim El-Keib told reporters after meeting the International Criminal Court chief prosecutor, in Libya to investigate Gaddafi's son who is wanted by the ICC.

Earlier this month a senior defense lawyer at the ICC asked the court to report Libya to the UN Security Council over its failure to extradite Saif al-Islam to The Hague.

Xavier-Jean Keita said the wanted man had been physically attacked and was suffering dental pain.
