    Tens of thousands of Tuaregs pastoralists living in the Niger city of Agadez continue to support Muammar Gaddafi, the deposed Libyan leader.

    This northern city bordering Libya is where Saadi, the son of Gaddafi, and several former generals have escaped to.

    It is believed that the Tuareg homeland remains a recruiting ground for Gaddafi fighters.

    Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports from Agadez.
