Gaddafi son in prison apology

ONE of the sons of former Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has issued an apology to the nation from prison.

In a video released by prison authorities in Tripoli, Saadi Gaddafi, 40, said: "I apologise to the Libyan people, and I apologise to the dear brothers in the Libyan government for all the harm I've caused and for disturbing the security and stability of Libya."

Gaddafi was extradited to Libya earlier this month from Niger. He is accused of trying to suppress the uprising against his father's rule.
