THE HAGUE (AFP) – International Criminal Court judges on Monday issued an arrest warrant for Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi for crimes against humanity, committed against opponents of his regime since mid-February, a judge said.

“The chamber hereby issue a warrant of arrest against Moamer Kadhafi,”Judge Sanji Mmasenono Monageng said during a hearing at the Hague-based court.

She also issued arrest warrants for Kadhafi’s son Seif al-Islam, 39, and the head of Libyan intelligence, Abdullah al-Senussi, 62, for murder and persecution since the uprising started.
