International Criminal Court rejects final Libya bid to try Gadhafi's son

THE HAGUE (AFP) - The International Criminal Court (ICC) on Wednesday rejected a final bid by Tripoli's lawyers to try slain dictator Moammar Gadhafi's son Seif al-Islam in Libya.

The presiding judge Erkki Kourulas struck down four grounds of appeal before the Hague-based court, saying "in the present case the Appeals Chamber confirms the (pre-trial chambers') decision and dismisses the appeal."
