Gaddafi Family flees to Algeria

Apparently Gaddafi’s wife and her daughter as well as other family members have crossed the border into Algeria. Sources think that Gaddafi himself is still in Libya together with two of his sons. Algeria stated that the refugees were received on humanitarian grounds but the rebel forces demand their extradition.

Algeria seems for now the obvious choice of the Gaddafi family. The two countries not only share a long border but also the Algerian government has not so far recognised the rebel forces as limit new government of Libya. It remains to be seen where and when Gaddafi himself will be found.
