Mauritania said Saturday it arrested former Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senoussi, who was one of the most prominent figures from the ousted regime of Muammar Qaddafi and is wanted by the International Criminal Court.

Al-Senoussi helped direct efforts to quash the rebellion against Qaddafi’s rule last year, and the ICC has indicted him along with Qaddafi’s son Seif al-Islam, on charges of crimes against humanity.

Mauritania’s state information agency said in a statement that al-Senoussi was arrested at the airport in the capital Nouakchott upon arrival from the Moroccan city of Casablanca. It said he was carrying a fake Malian passport.

Libyan Foreign Ministry spokesman Saad al-Shilmani said the arrest was not confirmed.
