Report of Gaddafi entering Algeria cannot be confirmed


16:43, August 27, 2011

ALGIERS, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- A report saying that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi may have fled his country and entered neighboring Algeria by land cannot be confirmed by Algerian authorities on Saturday.

An official from the Foreign Ministry hung up Xinhua's call after hearing the confirmation question. Xinhua's calls to the president office and information ministry were not answered.

Earlier in the day, the Egyptian news agency MENA reported that a convoy of six armored cars that could be carrying high-profile Libyan officials, even Gaddafi himself, crossed from Libya into Algeria on Friday, citing a source from the Libyan rebels.

The report could not be confirmed from the Libyan side neither.

The report said the convoy was escorted by pro-Gaddafi forces.

Most likely a lie, Chinese press have been eagerly printing and repeating alot of rebel propaganda and misinformation lately instead of minding their own business like they should, is China run by a bunch of two faced greedy coward and all they are thinking about is getting their corporates back in? i am sure the order to shift propaganda towards the transitional council came from high up, the situation in Libya will not stabilize unless there"s a political solution, China should continue supporting this road-map, and not be disgraceful and greedy, just my personal opinion, because the real tragedy in Libya might just be unfolding because of NATO"s increasing ruthlessness of imposing their will in this civil war.
