Gaddafi`s son offered rebels $2 bn for his release
Cairo: The son of the late Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi, Saif al-Islam, who was arrested on Saturday, offered a bribe of USD 2 billion to the rebels in exchange for his release, Az Zintan TV channel reported.
According to the TV channel, Saif al-Islam offered USD 2 billion to the rebels in the town of Zintan where he was brought after having been arrested in southern Libya.
The rebels rejected the talks with Gaddafi`s son and viewed his offer as "a humiliation to the revolution", the channel said.
Gaddafi`s regime was overthrown in October by opposition forces with NATO`s assistance after a seven-month civil war. Gaddafi, who ruled the country for almost 42 years, was captured and killed by rebels near his home town of Sirte late October.
