Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam spotted in Nigerien territory: military source


08:19, October 27, 2011

NIAMEY, Oct. 26 (Xinhua) -- Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam who is being sought by the International Criminal Court (ICC), was on Wednesday morning spotted in north Arlit (about 400 km north of Agadez) in the Nigerien territory, military sources have said.

Saif al-Islam who was being escorted by pro-Gaddafi fighters, had already established contacts with the Nigerien Armed Forces (FAN) in the Agadez region.

The same source said a military brigade had been sent to look for him.

On Tuesday, a Nigerien military source said on Monday night, Saif al-Islam who is being sought by Interpol had tried to cross over to the Nigerien territory in the extreme northern parts of the country, on the border with Libya.

Saif al-Islam and his brother-in-law Abdallah al-Senoussi are being sought by the ICC for committing crimes against humanity.

A governmental source from Niamey said al-Senoussi who was serving as Gaddafi's head of intelligence was spotted last week in the extreme northern parts of Niger, near the border with Libya.

It should be recalled that since September, Niamey has been hosting close confidants of Gaddafi among them his son Saadi Gaddafi "for humanitarian reasons".
