Gaddafi allies hard to find in Nigerien town

Several Gaddafi officials are said to be in Niger. But when Al Jazeera went looking they were nowhere to be seen.

    Marou Adamou, Niger's justice minister and government spokesman, has confirmed that Muammar Gaddafi's 37-year-old son, Saadi, has fled over the border.

    Saadi arrived in Niger, Libya's southern neighbour, in a convoy with nine other people and is now said to be en route to Agadez from where it is rumoured hundreds of pro-Gaddafi forces fighting in Libya were recruited.

    Several senior Libyan officials under Gaddafi are already said to have arrived in the town, although when Al Jazeera went to look for them, it was told they had moved on.

    Local Tuaregs say despite the toppled Libyan leader's help in the past, they won't protect Gaddafi nor his family.

    Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports from Agadez.
