Muammar Gaddafi's daughter Aisha has contacted the International Criminal Court in the Hague to ask whether it will probe the killing of her father and brother, her lawyer said Wednesday.

Aisha Gaddafi's lawyer Nick Kaufman said he had written to ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo asking for more information surrounding the Oct. 20 killing of Muammar Gaddafi and his son Mutassim.

"Aisha wants to know if he is investigating the murders and if not, why he is not," Kaufman told AFP.

The former Libyan leader and his son were killed after being captured in Sirte by rebel forces loyal to the National Transitional Council.

In a letter to the prosecutor, Kaufman stated that Gaddafi and his son were both captured alive and did not threaten anyone.

Shocking pictures of Gaddafi being beaten and dragged in the street of Sirte soon after his capture were posted on the internet and within hours it emerged the leader had died.

Other pictures also confirmed Mutassim was alive when captured.

"As you are aware, your analysis of the situation in Libya requires you to investigate the commission of alleged crimes by all parties to the conflict," Kaufman said.

The ICC issued an arrest warrant for Muammar Gaddafi on June 27 for crimes against humanity carried out by his regime at the beginning of the Libyan uprising.

The Hague tribunal has also issued warrants against another Gaddafi son, Saif al-Islam, and the former information minister Abdallah al-Senoussi.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was arrested Nov. 19 and Libyan authorities have said they intend to try him on Libyan soil.

While reports suggested that al-Senoussi had also been arrested in November, they remain unconfirmed.

Aisha, her brothers Mohamed and Hannibal, her mother Safiya and other family members are currently in Algeria after being allowed in the country on humanitarian grounds.

Aisha has recently angered Algerian authorities by calling on Gaddafi supporters in Libya to rise against the NTC government.

Fatou Bensouda replaced Louis Moreno Ocampo as the ICC chief prosecutor on Monday.
