TRIPOLI, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- Moussa Ibrahim, spokesman of the fallen administration of Muammar Gaddafi, has been arrested, a local Libyan television reported Thursday.

According to Freedom TV based in Misrata in northwestern Libya, Ibrahim was arrested by fighters of the ruling National Transitional Council (NTC) on Wednesday night near Gaddafi's hometown of Sirte.

The television quoted a NTC fighter as saying that the former spokesperson of Gaddafi mixed himself into a group of local villagers who were fleeing Sirte, where prolonged fighting were going on between NTC forces and remnant Gaddafi loyalists.

The report said the footage of Ibrahim's arrest will be broadcasted once he is sent to a safe place.
