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.

    The goverment of algeria is helping any wrong doers by its own action,these people should be taken back to libya and stand a trial for every crime they commit,let them be an example to other nations who are in the verge of falling that this is what your fate will be and not do whatever you want from torturing to killing.thus,the algerians goverment does need to send them back to where they come from to face their own people.....

      Didn't anybody read the article before rushing to expose their ignorance in a public forum? The Algerians have announced that Mommar's wife and children have passed into their country and made no mention of whether Mommar himself joined them. No judical system that has any semblence of legitimacy would try any relative to Ghadafy simply on grounds of the proximity to power.

    So, Moammar changed his mind about fighting to his death.

    These people and I use the term people loosely are not humans but devils. I hope they are brought to justice. Algeria, shame on you for harboring these devils.

    This is only the beginning of the Libyan turmoil. Islam is incapable of producing a democratic government. They need a strong leader which usully means corrupt. Let's see what kind of madness floats to the top of this cesspool again.

    Hopefully, the Algerians will do the right thing and keep the Gadhafi family under house arrest until they can be extradited to the Hague in Belgium or back to LIbya to face criminal charges. The arrogant glowing face of Gadhafi's wife's face is a slap in the face to the Libyan people who have fought to topple the tyrant.

      The Hague in Belgium. Looks like you know a lot about the world.
