Tunisian spokesman denies Gaddafi's family in Tunisia


10:44, August 20, 2011

TUNIS, August 19 (Xinhua) -- An interior ministry spokesman denied reports on Friday that Gaddafi's family are in Tunisia after fleeing from Libya.

"Our teams are working around the clock to monitor border traffic," he said, adding that "neither Gaddafi nor members of his family entered the country in 2011." His statement was broadcasted on Tunisian radio.

Earlier on Friday, Tunisian Radio Mosaique FM quoted a Libyan rebel source as saying that members of Gaddafi's family fled to Tunisia to board a Venezuelan plane bound for Caracas.

The report also said that it was highly likely that Gaddafi himself is no longer in the Libyan capital Tripoli, following overnight NATO strikes against his residential compound.
