Gadhafi son: Libya wants to invest in US

NEW YORK (AP) -- The son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi says Libya wants to put some of its $100 billion investment fund into American business and send thousands of students to study in the United States.

Seif al-Islam Gadhafi also says he expects the country to ratify a constitution that would provide for democratic elections by September 2009. That's the 40th anniversary of the 1969 revolution that brought his father to power.

Gadhafi spoke in an interview Friday with The Associated Press. The son of the Libyan leader has been a key figure in normalizing Libya's relations with the United States.
