Rebels: Algeria offers Gadhafi family passage to third country
TRIPOLI—Algeria, which has taken in some of Moammar Gadhafi’s family, has given them “a pass” to enter a third country, the Libyan rebel leadership said Monday.
“Algeria said they gave a pass to go to a third country. We cannot confirm that but they said they welcome them (to Algeria) for humanitarian reasons,” rebel spokesman Mahmud Shammam said.
Shammam said the rebel leadership did not understand how anyone could “save Gadhafi’s family” and wanted them back in Libya.
“Saving Gadhafi’s family is not an act we welcome and understand,” he said. “We’d like those persons to come back.”
