Libya asks Niger to reject Saadi Kadhafi asylum request
Libya's new leaders on Monday (November 14th) urged Niger to reconsider its "hostile" decision to grant asylum to Moamer Kadhafi's son Saadi, AFP reported.
"Niger should not become an asylum for criminals. We ask Niger to review this unjustified decision," said Abdel Hafidh Ghoga of the National Transitional Council.
On Friday, Niger's President Mahamadou Issoufou said that his country had decided to grant asylum to Saadi Kadhafi for humanitarian reasons. Saadi's brother, Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, is still at large. Both are wanted by Interpol.
