Algeria ignores Kadhafi plea for entry: report

Latest News / ALGIERS – Fallen Libyan dictator Muamer Kadhafi has attempted to negotiate with Algerian authorities to enter the country from a border town he is staying in, the El-Watan daily reported in its on-line edition Wednesday.


Kadhafi has been on the run since rebel forces overran the Libyan capital Tripoli a week ago.


Citing sources close to the Algerian president, the francophone newspaper reported that the former strongman has “tried to reach (Algerian) President Abdelaziz Bouteflika by telephone but he has refused to take the call.”


The report said Kadhafi was hiding out in the border town of Ghadames with family members awaiting permission to cross into Algeria where his wife, two sons and a daughter have already made their way.


“It’s not the first time that Kadhafi and his emissaries have tried to make contact with the Algerian president,” the newspaper said.


Kadhafi’s daughter Aisha gave birth in Algeria after fleeing Libya as her father’s regime crumbled.


The Algerian government said Tuesday that she had crossed into Algeria on Saturday with her brother Hannibal, their mother Safiya — Kadhafi’s second wife — and the fugitive leader’s eldest son Mohammed.


However Seif al-Islam, another fugitive son of the toppled dictator, said Wednesday in an audio tape on an Arabic-language channel that he was still in Tripoli and the fight against rebels goes on./ AFP
