A minister in the government of Muammar Gaddafi has been sentenced to death by a Libyan court.

Ahmed Ibrahim was found guilty of inciting violence against rebels during the 2011 uprising.

Ibrahim held senior positions including education minister, and the Reuters news agency says he was captured by rebels in Gaddafi's hometown of Sirte.

A judge reportedly found he had urged Sirte residents to form armed gangs and fight the rebels.

He will reportedly be executed by firing squad according to Libyan law.
