A court in the Libyan capital has sentenced a son of Moammar Gadhafi to death over killings during the country's 2011 uprising.

The Tripoli court handed down the sentence Tuesday for Seif al-Islam, who is currently being held by a militia that refuses to hand him over to the central government. The court sentenced eight others to death as well, including former Libyan spy chief Abdullah al-Senoussi.
