Gadhafi's son announces candidacy for president of Libya

The son of the late Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi, Saif al-Islam, is to run in the presidential election next month - according to Libya's election agency. Saif al-Islam, whose father was captured and killed during the 2011 civil war following a more than 40-year reign, submitted his candidacy papers in the southern town of Sabah, where he said that God will decide the country's future. During the 2011 uprising, Saif al-Islam was captured by fighters before being released in June 2017. The election takes place on 24 December.
