Moammar Gadhafi's son Saif al-Islam Gadhafi – who reportedly was captured by rebel forces on Sunday – made an appearance at Tripoli's Rixos Hotel early Tuesday, CNN's Matthew Chance reports.
Saif appeared outside the hotel - one of the remaining hold-outs for Gadhafi loyalists - in a convoy of armored Land Cruisers. Chance said he spoke to Saif briefly and took a photo of him.
Saif said his father and the rest of the family were in Tripoli, and that the rebels had been "lured into a trap."
There was no immediate explanation from the National Transitional Council, the rebel leadership that had announced he was in custody on Sunday.
