Egypt extradites two Gaddafi-era officials to Libya
Cairo: A Cairo airport official says authorities have extradited two Libyan officials from the regime of deposed dictator Muammar Gaddafi back to their home country.
It is the first time in years that Egypt has conducted such a high-profile extradition.
The official says the two, 71-year-old former ambassador to Cairo Ali Maria and another ex-official, 44-year-old Mohammed Ibrahim Gaddafi, were handcuffed after resisting the transfer.
The two were arrested a week ago along with a top Gaddafi aide and cousin Ahmed Qaddaf al-Dam.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the press.
Since Gaddafi was ousted and killed in 2011, Libya has demanded that Egypt handover dozens of officials from the former regime.
