Moussa Ibrahim, who was the mouthpiece of the Gadhafi regime during last year's war, was caught in the town of Tarhouna, 40 miles south of Tripoli.
"Moussa Ibrahim has been arrested by forces belonging to the Libyan government in the town of Tarhouna and he is being transferred to Tripoli to begin interrogation," a statement from the prime minister's office said.
