Tripoli: New video footage of Muammar Gaddafi`s son and one-time heir apparent Saif al-Islam taken shortly after his capture shows him warning his captors that Libya`s regions that united in revolution will turn against each other in the near future.

Saif al-Islam was taken prisoner on Saturday in southern Libya and is being held by fighters in the town of Zintan.

In a video acquired by a news agency, he tells his captors that "in a couple of months or maximum one year" the regions that banded together to oust Gaddafi will betray one another, suggesting the country will descend into infighting.

Saif al-Islam is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.

ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo is flying to Tripoli on Tuesday for talks with Libyan authorities Seif al-Islam.
