The son of late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, will go on trial in Libya next month for the charge of urging supporters to kill demonstrators and rebels during last year's uprising in the country, The Telegraph reported on Saturday.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi will face execution by hanging if he is found guilty, according to the report.

Gaddafi will be tried in Libya and the International Criminal Court at The Hague will play no role in the trial, The Telegraph reported.
