GENEVA (AP) -- The International Committee of the Red Cross says it has visited Moammar Gadhafi's son Seif al-Islam and he appears in good health.

A spokesman for the Geneva-based body says the visit took place Tuesday afternoon in the mountain town of Zintan, southwest of the capital.

Seif al-Islam was captured Saturday.

Red Cross spokesman Steven Anderson said the visit "took place in accordance with the ICRC's customary working procedures" and all further findings would remain confidential.

The Red Cross has a long tradition of visiting detainees captured during conflicts to ensure they are treated in accordance with international law.

Moammar Gadhafi died under mysterious circumstances shortly after his capture by opposition forces last month.
