Libya`s ex-intelligence chief in northern Niger

Gaddafi met a violent end after a NATO air attack hit a convoy in which he was trying to escape from his hometown of Sirte.

Niamey: Libya`s former intelligence
chief Abdallah Al-Senoussi, wanted by the International
Criminal Court, has been spotted in northern Niger, a
government source in the capital Niamey said on Saturday.

"The presence of Abdallah Al-Senoussi has been indicated
in the far north of Niger" near the border with Libya, the
source said.

"It`s a report that we have but our defence and security
forces have not yet intercepted," the source said. "So his
presence in Niger is not yet officially established".

Al Senoussi, 62, is the brother-in-law and former
righthand man of slain former dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
The ICC issued arrest warrants on June 27 for Gaddafi, his
son and longtime heir-apparent Seif al-Islam, who remains at
large, and al-Senoussi on charges of crimes against humanity.

Gaddafi, who lorded over the oil-rich North African nation
for 42 years, met a violent end on Thursday after a NATO air
attack hit a convoy in which he was trying to escape from his
hometown of Sirte.

He survived the air strike but was apparently captured
alive after a shootout between his supporters and new regime
fighters.
