Algiers: Muammar Gaddafi`s daughter Aisha, who entered Algeria from Libya Monday, gave birth to a baby girl Tuesday in an Algerian town, Xinhua reported.

Aisha gave birth in Djanet town of Illizi province, a government official said.

She had arrived in Illizi Monday morning along with her mother Safiya, her two brothers and their children, the Algerian foreign ministry confirmed in a statement.

"The wife of Muammar Gaddafi, Safiya, his daughter Aisha, and sons Hannibal and Mohammed, accompanied by their children, entered Algeria at 8.45 a.m. (0745 GMT) Monday through the Algeria-Libya border," Algeria`s official APS news agency quoted the statement as saying.

The ministry said UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the Libyan rebel National Transitional Council have been informed of their arrival.

Libyan rebel spokesman Mahmud Shammam said in Tripoli Tuesday the rebels have already demanded Gaddafi`s family members be extradited to face Libyan courts.

Algeria said Gaddafi`s family members have been allowed to stay in the country on humanitarian grounds.
