A senior aide to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's son visited London in recent days for secret talks with British officials, the Guardian reported on Thursday.

The contacts with Saif al-Islam's aide, Mohammed Ismail was just one of several such visits between Libyan officials and the West in the past two weeks, a sign that the regime may be looking for a way to end the conflict in the country, according to the report.

"There has been increasing evidence recently that the sons want a way out," the Guardian quoted a western diplomatic source as saying.

The report quoted a British Foreign Office Spokesman as saying that Ismail was told "[Muammar] Gaddafi has to go and there will be accountability for crimes committed at the international criminal court."
