An iPad believed to belong to high-rolling Hannibal Gaddafi, son of late Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi, contains more than 1,700 images of torture (top and bottom left) alongside shots of glamorous family holidays and shopping trips (main). Photographs show the 40-year-old enjoying the sunshine from his private yacht (bottom right), with his ex-lingerie model wife Aline Skaf (pictured main image and top right with Hannibal) and their two young children. Media activists decided to make the shocking torture images public after the mysterious kidnapping of Hannibal Gaddafi near Lebanon’s Syrian border on December 11. He has now been taken into custody by Lebanese authorities in connection with the 1978 disappearance of a revered Shiite cleric in Libya.
