Libyan official: Gadhafi hiding in southern desert

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - October 10, 2011

Moussa al-Kouni, the Tuareg representative on the governing National Transitional Council, says the fugitive leader could even be taking advantage of the rough terrain to go back and forth unnoticed across the border into Niger.

Al-Kouni produced no evidence during a news conference Monday. But he claims Gadhafi sent his son Khamis to the area two months before Tripoli fell to set up a radio station and make preparations in case the regime had to flee.

There has been much speculation about Gadhafi's whereabouts and some officials have alleged the Tuaregs are giving him shelter.
