The International Criminal Court has ruled that Libya's Gaddafi-era intelligence chief, Abdullah al-Senussi, can be tried in Libya.

The decision means that the ICC will no longer demand that Senussi be sent to The Hague to stand trial.

Senussi was extradited to Libya from Mauritania last year. He was indicted by the ICC in 2011 for war crimes allegedly committed during the uprising against Colonel Gaddafi.

The International Criminal Court is still seeking the transfer of Col. Muammar Gaddafi's son, Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, so he can stand trial in the Hague.

The United Nations Security Council asked the ICC to investigate alleged crimes in Libya in February 2011, shortly before the North Atlantic Treaty Organization intervened in the war between antiregime rebels and pro-Gadhafi forces.
