The son of Muammar Gaddafi will not get a fair trial in Libya, an International Criminal Court lawyer who was detained in Libya has said.

Melinda Taylor made the comments days after she was released from detention after meeting Saif al-Islam in the town of Zintan.

She said it was impossible for the 39-year-old to be tried in an "independent and impartial manner" in Libya.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi has been indicted by the ICC for crimes against humanity.
