Gaddafi son Saadi demands arrest warrant be dropped

ALGIERS - Saadi Gaddafi, son of the former the former Libyan leader Muammar, has asked Interpol, via his lawyer, to revoke a request for his arrest on the grounds that Libya's new rulers are not able to give him a fair trial.
Saadi, a businessman and former professional footballer, is in Niger after escaping across the border from Libya when National Transitional Council (NTC) forces captured the capital Tripoli in August.
Interpol has issued a "red notice" requesting that member states arrest Saadi with a view to extradition if they find him on their territory.
