AMSTERDAM (AP) — The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court says he is in indirect contact with Seif al-Islam Gadhafi about the possibility of surrendering for trial.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo tells The Associated Press talks are being held through intermediaries whom he did not identify. He also said he did not know exactly where Gadhafi is.

The prosecutor said Friday he believes unidentified mercenaries also are offering to find refuge for Gadhafi in an African country that does not cooperate with the court. He mentioned Zimbabwe as one possibility.

The son of slain Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was indicted in June for inciting crowds to murder during the early stages of the Libyan revolution.
