Libyan rebels have caught Muammar Qaddafi's son Moatassim Gadhafi, if National Transitional Council reports are to be believed. And generally, they're not. Official spokeseman Col. Ahmed Bani said the capture had not been confirmed, reports CNN. And the NTC has tossed around a lot of false reporting over the last few months. There was the time they maybe saw Qaddafi's other son Al Saif. Or when the NTC reported arresting a Qaddafi spokesman. And of course all the times rebels have claimed to have the ousted leader himself cornered. This could just be another false alarm, but maybe this time they're for real.
