British Foreign Secretary William Hague has warned Libya's neighbors not to shelter Muammar Qaddafi or members of his entourage who have been indicted by the International Criminal Court.

Hague, in Libya for the appointment of a new British ambassador, said Britain "will continue to assist in looking for them."

Hague also said he had raised the issue of the alleged mistreatment of prisoners by Libya's new interim rulers, who captured Tripoli in August ending Qaddafi's 42-year rule.

A Syria-based television station that is sympathetic to Qaddafi has reported that ousted leader Muammar Qaddafi's son Khamis was killed alongside Qaddafi-era intelligence chief Mohammed Abdullah al-Senousi in a battle on August 29 with forces loyal to Libya's new leaders.
