Khamis Gaddafi, son of the former Libyan leader is still alive and is in Libya, said the New China News Agency quoted a senior source within the Libyan Ministry of Defence on Monday.

According to the agency, information about Khamis had been forwarded to the authorities by Seif al-Islam, another son of the former Libyan leader arrested Nov. 19 in southern Libya.

The intelligence services of the National Transitional Council, in power in Libya, say Khamis is located in the city of Tarhounah, 90 km southeast of Tripoli, and hope to stop it as soon as possible, said the agency.
