Gadhafi’s son on the lam
Mali? Niger? Whereabouts is the subject of speculation
Question of the Day
He said he has no independent information about Mr. Gadhafi, but said he does believe media reports that his convoy is carrying gold, diamonds and cash - which could be his passport to freedom.
Mr. Thiam said up to 500 Tuaregs in 130 vehicles had fled Libya to northern Mali after the fall of Moammar Gadhafi’s 42-year regime. Hundreds of other Tuareg fighters have gone home to Chad and Niger.
Many Tuaregs are furious about how Moammar Gadhafi was captured and killed.
Mosques in Tuareg towns across the Sahel dedicated Friday prayers to the memory of the slain Libyan leader, who used some of Libya’s oil wealth to build mosques and religious schools across the region and who glorified the tribes’ nomadic lifestyle.
A Western diplomat said last week that he has information suggesting that Mr. al-Senoussi crossed into northern Mali last week, though he cautioned that “a man like this could create false leads for people to follow.”
On Oct. 28, a Tuareg leader said Mr. Gadhafi was nearing the Mali border and could cross into the country that night. These sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject.
That same day, Mr. Moreno-Ocampo, the ICC prosecutor, said he was in indirect negotiations with Mr. Gadhafi about his possible surrender for trial. Libyan officials then announced that they want Mr. Gadhafi.
Since then, nothing has been heard of Mr. Gadhafi.
