's son to face crimes against humanity charges.
But Libya said that letting Seif al-Islam Qadaffy go on trial outside the country would worsen unrest gripping the country and would even be a threat to his life.
Bensouda called on the U.N. Security Council to press Libya over the dear departed strongman's son, and also for international help including "telephone intercepts" and information on money transfers linked to the Qadaffy family and their associates.
The ICC and Libyan government have been wrangling over Seif al-Islam since the overthrow and killing of his father in October 2011.
The ICC ruled this year against letting Libya put Qadaffy's son on trial at home.
Seif al-Islam is held by a brigade of former rebel fighters and many rights groups say he will not get a fair trial in Libya where the authorities face mounting security concerns amid attacks on government and judicial targets.
Libya has said it will give the ICC new information on the Seif al-Islam case. But Bensouda said it was "fundamentally important" for the Security Council to pressure Libya over the case and for all states to respect ICC warrants.
