Tunisian authorities deny Gaddafi family members fled

Reports had said that Gaddafi`s wife and daughter had arrived in Tunisia.



Tunis: Authorities in Tunis on Thursday denied
reports that members of embattled Libyan leader Muammar
Gaddafi`s family, including his wife and daughter, had fled
and arrived in Tunisia.

"These reports are totally false," said a government
source, stressing that "no member of the Gaddafi family has
crossed the Tunisian border" with Libya, where Gaddafi
loyalists are fighting to put down a rebellion.

Press reports had in particular said that Gaddafi`s
wife and daughter, Sofia and Aicha, had arrived in Tunisia.

"Once again, I repeat, these reports are false," added
the Tunisian government source, who asked not to be named.

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court,
Luis Moreno-Ocampo, on Monday asked ICC judges to give him
international arrest warrants for crimes against humanity
against Kadhafi, his son Seif Al-Islam and the head of Libyan
intelligence service, Abdallah Al-Senoussi.

The insurgency in Libya began in February and tens of
thousands of people, including foreign immigrant workers, have
fled the fighting and crossed the border into Tunisia.
