Ghaddafi: Al-Qaida members to be kept in prison indefinitely

Al-Qaida detainees will be kept in prison even after they complete theirsentences in order to prevent them from engaging in terrorist activity, Libyanleader Muammar Ghaddafi declared on Thursday, according to a Reuters report.

Ghaddafi reportedly called the prisoners “heretics,” adding that prolongedjail confinement would also prevent terrorists from moving to other countriesin the region in order to plan attacks there.

"It is a necessity to keep them in prison … Who would vouch for these300 or 100 dangerous people?” the Libyan leader was quoted as saying.
