Report: Gaddafi Spotted In Zimbabwe?

The Daily Mail is reporting that Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi has been spotted in Zimbabwe:

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has fled Libya to Zimbabwe on a jet provided by Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, it was claimed today, as rebels began the march on his home town.

President Mugabe’s political opponents claim their spies saw Gaddafi arrive in the country on a Zimbabwe Air Force jet in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

They say the Libyan dictator was taken to a mansion in Harare’s Gunninghill suburb, where agents from his all-female bodyguard were apparently seen patrolling the grounds.

It wouldn’t be too much of a surprise, if true. Mugabe is one of the few leaders left in the world who would be willing to give Gaddafi asylum.
