A Libyan fact-finding team who were in Beirut to investigate the case of a detained son of ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi have departed the country amid security concerns, Lebanese security officials have said.  

The Libyan team came to Beirut to request Hannibal Gaddafi’s extradition for crimes committed during his late father’s rule.

Lebanese authorities relayed an unspecified threat to the safety of the country and advised the Libyan Justice Ministry team to depart. The team left on Tuesday, Lebanese officials said.

No more details were given by the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Earlier this month, unknown captors delivered Hannibal Gaddafi to Lebanese authorities.
