Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam, wanted by the International Criminal Court, has crossed the Libyan border into Niger, a senior official in the National Transitional Council that ousted Gaddafi told Reuters on Thursday.

Saif al-Islam, fearing for his life if captured in Libya, appears to be trying to hand himself in to the court, but the official said he had not yet found a way to do so.

"There is a contact with Mali and with South Africa and with another neighboring country to organize his exit ... He hasn't got confirmation yet, he's still waiting," said the official, who declined to be named.
