“The International Criminal Court acts when the national system cannot do it,” Moreno-Ocampo said. “That’s why we are here, to understand what they are doing.” In a statement before his arrival, Moreno-Ocampo called the arrest of Saif al-Islam and al-Senoussi “a crucial step in bringing to justice those most responsible for crimes committed in Libya.” Libya’s new leaders have not yet established a functioning court system, and have been struggling to put together a new transitional government since Qaddafi’s fall. Later Tuesday, interim Prime Minister Abdurrahim el-Keib was expected to announce the members of his new Cabinet. Saif al-Islam, who was once the face of reform in Libya and who led his father’s drive to emerge from pariah status over the last decade, was captured Saturday by fighters from the small western mountain town of Zintan who had tracked him to the desert in the south of the country. He was then flown to Zintan, 85 miles (150 kilometers) southwest of Tripoli, where he remains in a secret location. In new video footage taken the day of his capture and obtained by The Associated Press, Saif al-Islam warns his captors that Libya’s regions that united to oust Qaddafi will turn against each other “in a couple of months or maximum one year,” suggesting the country will descend into infighting. There have been signs in recent months of growing tensions among Libya’s powerful regions, and even after Qaddafi’s fall in August and after his capture and killing in October, the country’s numerous and sometime competing revolutionary factions have refused to disarm, raising fears of new violence and instability. The regions, backed by bands of armed fighters, are able to act autonomously, even on issues of the highest national interest. In the video, revolutionary fighters stand around Saif al-Islam, who is seated in a green chair. Three of his fingers are heavily bandaged, and he occasionally winces from the pain.

The lack of progress toward a political settlement with the Taliban is a major disappointment for the United States, which sees a deal as the key to ending the war. But the prospect of some accommodation with the hardline movement that once forbade Afghan girls to go to school is a bitter pill for many of the leaders Clinton addressed Monday. “Reconciliation holds promise, but it cannot be at the cost of the gains you have suffered for,” Clinton said. The Bonn conference attendees are hoping to agree on a set of mutual binding commitments under which Afghanistan would promise reforms and work toward goals such as good governance, with donors and international organizations pledging long-term assistance in return to ensure the country’s viability beyond 2014. “The road ahead will remain stony and difficult. It will require endurance and tenacity,” German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said. “A stable and peaceful Afghanistan which does not pose a threat to the world is in the interest of all of us.” Afghanistan will present a sobering view of its economic dependence on foreign aid and spending related to the huge military presence and seek assurance that donor nations will help fill the gap after most forces leave by 2015. Although donor nations will not commit to specific figures at the one-day session Monday, they will sign up to the principle that economic and other advances in Afghanistan since the ouster of the Taliban government in 2001 should be safeguarded with continued funding. Afghanistan estimates it will need outside contributions of roughly $10 billion, or slightly less than half the country’s annual gross national product, in 2015. It will present plans to expand mining and agriculture and boost exports, and pledge improvements in financial management and anti-corruption efforts. Pakistan is a central player in regional efforts to improve trade and strengthen historically weak economies in what is a strategically important part of the world. But its boycott has cast a pall over the session, because it points out that nation’s influence in Afghanistan and its ability to play the spoiler. Will Pakistan boycott render Bonn “futile”? Pakistan is seen as instrumental to ending the Taliban-led insurgency in Afghanistan because of its links to militant groups and its unwillingness, from the U.S. and NATO perspective, to drive insurgents from safe havens on its soil where they regroup and rearm. Pakistan canceled its participation to protest last month’s NATO air assault, carried out from Afghan territory, that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers. The deaths fed the popular perspective in Pakistan that the U.S. and NATO, not the Taliban, are Pakistan’s principal enemies. Pakistan’s army accused NATO of a “deliberate act of aggression,” an assertion the Pentagon hotly denied. Pakistan has received billions in U.S. aid since 2001, largely in expectation of cooperation against militants. Clinton called the deaths tragic and pledged a thorough investigation. Pakistan rebuffed her entreaties, as recently as Saturday, to reconsider and attend the conference. President Obama called Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari Sunday to reaffirm that the NATO air strikes were not deliberate attacks and that the U.S. is committed to a full investigation. A report by the Paksitani newspaper DAWN suggested Monday that Islamabad may send some lower-level envoy to Bonn after Mr. Obama’s call to Zardari, reports CBS News’ Farhan Bokhari. A senior official in Zardari’s office tells CBS News a “last minute” decision to attend the Bonn conference remained a possibility. The official also said the U.S. had privately made Pakistan aware of the repercussions that it faces from continuing to take a hard line following the helicopter attack on Pakistan.

Afghanistan’s western neighbor Iran, in turn, joined the conference, represented by Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi. The U.S. had once hoped to use the Bonn gathering to announce news about the prospect for peace talks with the Taliban, making it a showcase for political reconciliation, but Afghan and U.S. outreach efforts have not borne fruit and no prominent Taliban representatives were attending the conference. “The political process will be inclusive, open to the Taliban and other militants who renounce violence,” Karzai said. The reconciliation efforts suffered a major setback after the September assassination of former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani, who was leading the Afghan government’s effort to broker peace with the insurgents. The final declaration of the Bonn conference is expected to outline broad principles for political reconciliation with the Taliban, a project that several leading participants in the conference increasingly predict will outlast the NATO timeline for withdrawal in 2014. The session is also expected to address the holdup in hundreds of millions in development aid for smaller, community-based projects because of financial irregularities and corruption in Afghanistan’s key Kabul Bank. The International Monetary Fund lifted some restrictions related to Kabul Bank last month, which Afghan diplomats said should give a green light to renewed international contributions. The U.S. has held its annual contribution to between $650 million and $700 million. Afghanistan is failing in two major areas in particular: security and good government. Violence has gone up sharply this year, and has spread to the once-peaceful north of the country. And widespread corruption is bedeviling attempts to create a viable Afghan government and institutions to take over when the U.S. and NATO leave. Afghanistan provides about 90 percent of the world’s opium, the raw ingredient used to make heroin. Money from the sale of opium is also used to fuel the insurgency, helping to buy weapons and equipment for the Taliban. A law meant to protect Afghan women from a host of abusive practices, including rape, forced marriage and the trading of women to settle disputes, is being undermined by spotty enforcement, the U.N. said in a report last month. The 2009 law criminalized many abuses for the first time, including domestic violence, child marriage, driving a woman to resort to suicide and the selling and buying of women. Yet the report found that in the first full year the law was in effect prosecutors filed indictments in only 7 percent of the more than 2,000 alleged crimes reported.
