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.

      This woman, and certainly the children, have suffered enough at the hands of the monster. Why punish the innocents? First, gather some evidence.

    So they cross into a 3rd world country and that country knows right away. If they had crossed from Mexico we would be clueless.

    They let Algeria know so they would be given "status" treatment. Wonder how much money they brought along with them.

    Gadhafi and his family should be brought back Libya and stand trial for their actions by their own people. They can't escape natural justice.

    Algerian government, I urge you to arrest the wife of Gadhafi for torturing her nany and extradite her to Libya where she should stand trial for attempted murder and torture.

    Moammar should be put back in power. He was a true American friend. Now with the Obama henchmen in place for takeover. Another country is ready to fall to the muslim fanatics. What a shame.
