Convoy of senior Libyans crossed into Algeria
A convoy of six armored vehicles that could be carrying senior Libyan officials, maybe even fugitive leader Moammar Gaddafi, crossed from Libya into Algeria on Friday, Egypt's official news agency reported quoting a Libyan rebel source.
The report said six armored Mercedes had Friday morning entered Ghadames, quoting a Libyan military council source in the town on the border with Algeria.
The source was quoted as saying the column had been escorted by pro-government troops until it entered Algeria.
An Algerian border official, meanwhile, said the reported crossing was unlikely as no such sighting had been reported by local residents.
