Gaddafi`s son reaches Niger capital, seeks refuge

A son of Muammar Gaddafi has arrived in the capital of Niger to seek political asylum.



Niamey: A son of Muammar Gaddafi has
arrived in the capital of Niger to seek political asylum.

Officials had confirmed over the weekend that al-Saadi Gaddafi had crossed the border from Libya. He was in the
central town of Agadez on Monday, but government spokesman
Marou Amadou said just after midnight today that he is now in
Niamey, Niger`s capital.

Three generals in Gaddafi`s army are also in Niamey
trying to gain political asylum for themselves and other
members of Gaddafi`s crumbling regime. They were in
negotiations with Nigerien officials all day yesterday.

The former rebels in Libya want regime officials to be
sent back. Al-Saadi Gaddafi is the subject of a United Nations
sanction for commanding a military unit that is accused of
repression of demonstrations.
