Tripoli - The dead tyrant's son has told reporters his mobile home was attacked by machete-wielding insurgents on the Libya-Niger border in a dawn raid today.
A customised Airstream was reduced to splinters following a tip-off from Libyan Red Top sources keen to snap up a $1million finders' fee.
"There'll be hell to pay for when Grandma finds out," the despot's favorite son moaned out loud, clutching a photo of Queen Elizabeth.
He was then dragged away by NTC forces as a Dale Farm-style caravan site at Obari was torched in a ritual cleansing rite.
A few hours later Saif's Farcebook page posted pix of Pudsey-like bandaged fingers showing him wounded but relatively chipper amid extradition plans for trial at The Hague.
Sources close to arresting Libyan militia commander Bashir Al-Tayeleb slammed the social network posting amid claims Gaddafi Jr's hands had been blown up in a NATO air raid earlier last month.
"Cynical bastard, those wounds were probably self-inflicted in a cunning plot to erase his er, fingerprints," Al-Tayeleb's chauffeur said on the early evening news.
The captive's sole companion in the caravan, rumored to be a pygmy camel called Princess Anus, somehow managed to survive the attack.
It will now be put on trial for alleged blasphemy because of some unfortunate tattoos on its arse.
