Niger crossing ..Gaddafi road mapping


بسم الله الر حمن الر حيم

A large convoy of Libyan armoured vehicles has crossed into Niger, according to the Reuters news agency.
French and Niger military sources told the agency that the convoy, escorted by the Niger army, arrived in the northern desert town of Agadez on Monday.

The convoy contained between 200 and 250 military vehicles and included officers from Libya's southern army battalions, and likely crossed from Libya into Algeria before entering Niger, the sources said.
The Niger military source said many more Libyans, including pro-Gaddafi Tuareg fighters, had also crossed the border into the country seeking refuge.

The French military source said he had been told Muammar Gaddafi and his son Saif al-Islam might be considering joining the convoy en route to Burkina Faso, a landlocked West African state which has offered Gaddafi and his family asylum and has a border with Niger...more news

Negotiations over the surrender of Muammar Gaddafi's stronghold, Bani Walid, appear to have failed and an attack on the Libyan town seems likely.

Two deadlines have passed and thousands of National Transitional Council fighters were on Monday massing outside the town, about 150km southeast of the Libyan capital, Tripoli.
There were also reports of a large convoy of Libyan armoured vehicles crossing into Niger.

A French military source and a Niger military source told the Reuters news agency that the convoy, escorted by the Nigerien military, arrived in the northern desert town of Agadez.
The convoy contained between 200 and 250 Libyan military vehicles and included officers from Libya's southern army battalions, and likely crossed from Libya into Algeria before entering Niger, the sources said.

The French military source said he had been told Gaddafi and his son Saif al-Islam might be considering joining the convoy en route to Burkina Faso, a landlocked West African state which has offered Gaddafi and his family asylum and has a border with Niger.

A Nigerien government source earlier said prominent regime officials had fled across the border.

They included Gaddafi's internal security chief Mansour Daw, who was earlier reported to be in Bani Walid with at least two of the toppled leader's sons.

Daw and some 10 others were brought across the border to Agadez by a top Tuareg leader allied to Gaddafi, Tuareg sources said.

It was not clear if they were part of the large military convoy.

As for the deposed leader, he is reportedly still in Libya. His spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said that Gaddafi "is in a place that will not be reached by those fractious groups, and he is in Libya."

Gaddafi is in good health and in good spirits, Ibrahim said in remarks broadcast on Monday. He said Gaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam, was also in Libya, moving around from one place to another....more news
