The former spokesman for the late Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has been captured outside Tripoli, an official said Saturday.

Moussa Ibrahim, who spoke on behalf of the government in last year's war that resulted in its ouster, was taken captive by Libyan special forces in Tarhouna, a town about 40 miles south of Tripoli, said Mohammed al-Sabbee, the spokesman for Libya's prime minister.

Ibrahim is being taken to Tripoli, al-Sabbee told CNN on Saturday.
