Gadhafi Spy Chief Dorda Arrested

Sunday, 11 September 2011 01:42 PM EDT

TRIPOLI — Bouzaid Dorda, the head of Moammar Gadhafi's external security organisation, has been arrested by anti-Gadhafi fighters, Reuters witnesses said on Sunday.

Dorda, Gadhafi's foreign intelligence service chief, will be handed over to Libya's interim governing council later on Sunday, an anti-Gadhafi fighter said.

A team of Reuters journalists visited a house in the capital's Zenata district where Dorda, a former prime minister, was held by members of a unit of anti-Gadhafi fighters who call themselves Brigades of the Martyr Abdelati Ghaddour.

Dorda was kept in the downstairs living room of a private house, which was guarded by about 20 fighters clad in battle fatigues and armed with assault rifles.

Dorda took on his job in May after his predecessor Moussa Koussa defected.

He has been subject to a travel ban under a United Nations sanctions resolution passed in February.

Dorda is one of several former government officials rounded up since Tripoli fell to anti-Gadhafi forces last month. Gadhafi's foreign minister, Abdelati Obeidi, was arrested on Aug. 31 in a suburb west of Tripoli.
