GENEVA - The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said on Thursday it had made its second visit to Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of Libya's former leader, detained by militia fighters in the west of the country.
"We visited him yesterday ... It was a short visit by ICRC delegates including a doctor," ICRC spokesman Steven Anderson told Reuters."It was in keeping with our standard procedures. We cannot comment on his condition. He wrote a Red Cross message to a member of his family," he added.
The visit came six months after Libyan militia fighters captured Saif al-Islam as he took refuge in the Sahara desert, following the overthrow and killing of his father Muammar Gaddafi in Libya's uprising.
