    Libya's former head of intelligence Abdullah al-Senussi has been arrested in Mauritania.

    Al-Senussi, one of the most prominent figures in the country under ex-leader Muammar Gaddafi, played a major role in trying to crush last year's rebellion.

    He is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, along with Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam.
