As the collapse of Muammar Qaddafi’s regime enters its last days, Interpol has issued a ‘red notice’ on Qaddafi, his son Seif al-Islam and Abdullah al-Senussi, his former chief of Libya’s intelligence agency. Convoys of high-level Libyan officials fleeing into Niger continue unabated, as more loyalists abandon the flailing regime. The government of Niger will honor the Interpol notices concerning Qaddafi, his son and former intelligence minister, so if Qaddafi and his family have fled into Niger it is expected that they will be remanded back although that is not completely certain. Ali Sharif al-Rifi is said to be in the Nigerian city of Agadez, along with other high ranking Qaddafi officials. Two of Qaddafi’s sons and his second wife have been granted asylum in Algeria based on humanitarian grounds.
