Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Libyan official says 'Saif Gaddafi will face trail inside country'

Tripoli -  Slain Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam, will face trial in his home country and there will be a verdict before mid-June, an official has said.

The announcement comes despite appeals by rights groups to Libyan authorities to hand him over to the International Criminal Court in The Hague for trial.

Human rights activists fear that Saif may not get a fair trial in Libya.

According to Fox News, spokesman of the ruling National Transitional Council Mohammed al-Hareizi said that Saif will be transferred to Tripoli within ten days and his trial will conclude  before parliamentary elections scheduled two months from now.

"He will be tried for rape, murder, corruption and we expect him to be tried and a verdict rendered before the upcoming elections in mid-June," the report quoted al-Hareizi, as saying.

It was, however, unclear if he would be tried in a military court, where there is no appeal.

Revolutionary fighters from Zintan captured Saif in the southern desert of Libya in November.

They have kept him in a secret location in the western Libyan town ever since as the government negotiated for his handover.
