DailyMail | The International Criminal Court is set to issue an arrest warrant for Colonel Gaddafi, it has been announced.
Italy's Foreign Minister said the warrant issued at the end of the month would be a 'key moment' in the Libyan crisis, as the dictator today made his first public appearance in weeks.
Franco Frattini said the warrant would make it 'impossible' for the Libyan leader to leave the country in exile as 'all the international community would have legal obligations'.
Colonel Gaddafi has made his first public appearance for weeks after a NATO air strike on Tripoli killed his youngest son and three grandchildren.
The Libyan dictator - who was filmed talking with tribal leaders in a hotel in the capital - was last seen in public on April 9.
