Some Gaddafi Loyalists Fleeing into Niger?
An armed convoy of about 50 vehicles from Libya has crossed over the southern desert border into Niger.
The convoy is believed to be carrying mainly Tuareg fighters recruited by fugitive Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi to fight for his regime.
Officials from the NTC said the convoy set out from the Gaddafi-held town of Jufra.
“Late last night [Monday], 10 vehicles carrying gold, euros and dollars crossed from Jufra into Niger with the help of Tuaregs from the Niger tribe,” Fathi Baja from the NTC told Reuters.
These claims have not been independently verified.
The whereabouts of Gaddafi remains unknown.
