Sirte, Libya (CNN) -- Libya's National Transitional Council offered no official confirmation Thursday of the arrest of Moatassim Gadhafi, one of the deposed leader's sons believed to have been captured after a four-hour firefight in Sirte.

Abdallah Naker, the head of the Tripoli Revolutionary Council, said Moatassim Gadhafi was arrested, but the National Transitional Council was not announcing it for security reasons.

Naker cited field commanders in Sirte as his sources for the arrest, but two senior council spokesmen said the report was unconfirmed and a third reportedly denied the claim.

Ali Tarhouni, Libya's interim deputy prime minister and oil minister, dismissed the importance of the arrest.
