Reports: Some Of Gadhafi's Family In Algeria

Aug 29, 2011

Algeria's state news agency is reporting that the government there says members of Moammar Gadhafi's family are now in that country, The Associated Press and other news outlets say.

It's thought that they include the ousted Libyan leader's wife, two sons and a daughter. NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro, who is in Tripoli, says it's also being reported that some of Gadhafi's grandchildren may also be in the group.

Sky News says on its Twitter page that:

"Algerian Foreign Ministry confirms Safiya, Aisha, Hannibal and Mohammed Gaddafi crossed into country from Libya this morning."

Gadhafi's whereabouts are still unknown, Lourdes adds.
