Al Jazeera has obtained an exclusive interview with Abdelati Obeidi, Muammar Gaddafi's foreign minister, who is being detained in the capital, Tripoli.
He was said to have been taken into custody at his farm in Janzour, a suburb west of Tripoli, on Tuesday.
Speaking under armed guard from a safehouse in the Libyan capital, Obeidi said he had given himself up to the National Transitional Council for his own safety.
Obeidi, who said he was being treated well, called on Gaddafi's forces to put an end to the bloodshed.
