Reports: Qaddafi's Wife and Three Children In Algeria

Muammar el-Qaddafi’s wife and three of his children are said to be in Algeria after fleeing Libya, where rebels have taken over the streets of the capital Tripoli.

Algeria’s Foreign Affairs ministry said the family entered the country, which neighbors Libya, on Monday, according to the Associated Press. The ministry did not say whether the embattled leader himself was with the family.

CNN reports that Qaddafi’s wife, Safia; his daughter, Aisha; and his sons Hannibal and Mohammed crossed the border into Algeria at about 8:45 this morning. “The border crossing that they used is quite well in the south of Libya. The south of Libya is believed to be still somewhat sympathetic to Muammar el-Qaddafi. Many people believe that’s where he’s hiding out,” CNN’s Nic Robertson reported.

Rebels stormed Qaddafi’s compound last week, looting through the strongman’s personal belongings, but Qaddafi remains at large.
