But had Saif al-Arab defected? Answers sought.

The youngest son of embattled Libyian leader Moammar Ghaddafi has joined the revolutionists, reported Al Hurra TV. Saif ul Arab was originally sent by his father to suppress the protesters in the east region of Libya, armed with combat troops and millitary equipments but he defacted.
