TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - The office of the Libyan prime minister has announced that slain Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's former spokesman has been captured at a checkpoint outside the besieged town of Bani Walid.

The statement carried by the state news agency on Saturday says Moussa Ibrahim was captured by the forces of the interim Libyan government at a checkpoint in the town of Tarhouna.

The statement says Ibrahim is being taken to Tripoli to be questioned. It didn't specify when he was captured.

The urbane, English-speaking Ibrahim became the voice of the regime in its final year, often appearing on television defending it.

Libyan forces have surrounded Bani Walid, which they describe as a final bastion of sympathizers of Gadhafi's regime.
