AMSTERDAM, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Another of Muammar Gaddafi’s sons, whose military unit is accused of killing dozens of detainees in Tripoli, may be placed on the war crimes court’s most wanted list, the prosecutor told Reuters on Monday.

The Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) has already approved warrants for the arrest of Gaddafi, his son Saif al-Islam, and Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi on charges of crimes against humanity.

Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said he may also apply for an arrest warrant for Gaddafi’s son Khamis, after Human Rights Watch said members of the Khamis Brigade, a force commanded by him, appeared to have carried out summary executions of detainees whose bodies were found in a warehouse in Tripoli.
