Niger has turned over to Tripoli a son of Libya's late dictator Moammar Gadhafi after he fled across the desert during the 2011 uprising that ended his father's four-decade rule.The government said Saadi Gadhafi, who escaped to Niger during the revolt that saw rebels capture and kill his father, was now in Libyan custody. Saadi Gadhafi was best known as the head of Libya's football federation and a player who paid his way into Italy's top division.Libya had repeatedly called for Saadi's extradition from Niger, which had granted him asylum on "humanitarian" grounds, saying it had insufficient guarantees Libya's new rulers would give him a fair trial.More than two and a half years after Gadhafi's downfall, Libya's transitional authorities have struggled to integrate former rebels into the police force and army.
