Gaddafi’s son captured and held - not abused or murdered

It would seem that a sufficient outcry was raised by civilized people in response to the barbaric treatment and murder of Muammar Gaddafi to shame the captors of his son into pursuing justice the other day instead of revenge. 

Reuters has the story:

Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam has been captured, scared and with just a few thousand dollars, in the Libyan desert by fighters who vowed to hold him in the mountain town of Zintan until there was a government to hand him over to.

The fighters claimed his capture as gunfire and car horns expressed jubilation across Libya at the seizure of the British-educated 39-year-old who a year ago was set for a dynastic succession to rule the oil-producing desert state.
