A court in Libya on Tuesday sentenced one of Moammar Gadhafi to death by firing squad after convicting him of murder and inciting genocide during the country’s 2011 civil war. It’s unlikely, though, that the sentence against Seif al-Islam Gadhafi will be carried out any time soon. He’s been in the custody of a militia in Western Libya for the past four years. They’ve refused to hand him over to the government. That uncertainty reflects the chaos still gripping this North African nation split between rival militias and governments while facing an affiliate of the extremist Islamic State group.
