Algeria receives Gaddafi's family members on humanitarian grounds only: media


08:20, August 31, 2011

ALGIERS, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Algerian Foreign Ministry confirmed that the government allowed members of the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to stay in the country on humanitarian grounds only, Algeria's state-owned radio reported on Tuesday.

Gaddafi's wife Safiya, his daughter Aisha, and sons Hannibal and Mohammed, accompanied by their children, entered Algeria Monday morning through the Algerian-Libyan border, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Aisha gave birth to a baby girl early Tuesday in Algeria after entering Libya's neighboring country, a government source told Xinhua.

Algeria would hand over Muammar Gaddafi to the International Criminal Court if the embattled Libyan leader attempted to enter the North African country, local Arabic-language daily Echorouk quoted well-informed sources as saying Tuesday.

The government made the decision according to the arrest warrants issued by the International Criminal Court for Gaddafi, his son Seif al-Islam Gaddafi and intelligence chief Abdullah al- Senussi, the report added.
