Gadhafi's wife, 3 of his kids cross into Algeria, foreign ministry says

The wife and three children of Moammar Gadhafi are in Algeria, that nation's Foreign Ministry said Monday.

His wife Safia, his daughter Aisha and two of his sons, Hannibal and Mohamed, came to Algeria via the Libyan border.

U.N. and National Transitional Council officials were informed of the development, the ministry said.

Aisha, a former U.N. goodwill ambassador who has kept a low profile during Libya's violent uprising, is due to give birth in early September, sources close to her family said.

    Saddam was once our close ally & friend. Photo of our own Rumsfeld obediently shaking Saddam's hand in his palace has perhaps been shredded.
    We sold billions of dollars worth of weapons to both Ghaddafi & Saddam

    Now this is the best news I've heard in weeks. Qadaffy's family has been through h**l during the last 6 months. It's high time that these people got a break despite what the right-wing thugs in Washington say! After all, what have these thugs been through( I mean the ones in Washington, of course!)

      Too bad the average Libyan can't get this same break.

      Aren't you kind of ashamed to post such a stupid comment like the one you just posted above? I would be if I were you. Besides, I'd thank you to leave God's name out of this. If you read Genesis, chapters 6 and 19 of the Bible, you'll know why God won't bless America!
