LONDON -- Activists say they have occupied a London mansion owned by a son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.

A group calling itself Topple the Tyrants said it entered the house Wednesday. Spokesman Montgomery Jones says the squatters, who are not Libyan, will stay "until this property can be returned to the Libyan people."

Police say officers are monitoring the situation and no arrests had been made.

The eight-bedroom Georgian-style house with swimming-pool and sauna is reportedly owned by Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, who had put it on the market for more than 10 million pounds ($16 million). It was withdrawn from sale last month.

The British government has seized more than $3.3 billion in assets belonging to the Gadhafi family and associates, as part of sanctions.
