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.

    There is no need to deport them back, the family doesn't need to be punished for crimes of the family patriarch. The daughter is expecting a child in September and people on here want her killed with an unborn child? The regime is over and all efforts need to be focussed on arresting or containing Gaddafi and his sons that pose the bigger threat to the stability of the revolution.

      Did you read or see the article about the nanny that was tortured by daughter-in-law Aline? Absolute power corrupts absolutely. I'm don't believe the relatives are all innocent bystanders.
