Niger's government spokesman says the son of Muammar Qaddafi has been ordered back to his home after violating the terms of his house arrest.

Marou Amadou said Saturday that Al-Saadi Qaddafi will not be handed over to Libyan authorities.

Al-Saadi fled to Niger as his father's regime crumbled in September 2011 and has been under house arrest in the desert West African nation ever since.

The younger Qaddafi is still the subject of a U.N. travel ban but is not wanted by the International Criminal Court.

His brother Seif awaits trial in Libya. Other family members have been granted asylum in Oman.

Al-Saadi Qaddafi is known for his love of professional soccer and playboy lifestyle.

Amadou did not say where the Libyan refugee had gone to violate the house arrest.
