Algerian media: Niger says Libyan convoys arrived

Algerian media: Niger says Libyan convoys arrived

Algerian state media report that Niger's foreign minister has confirmed several Libyan convoys have entered his country, but that none carried ousted Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi.
Algeria's state news agency APS was quoting Niger's Mohamed Bazoum. According to the report, Bazoum says that Niger would consider handing Gadhafi over to Libyan rebels who pushed him out of power.
Bazoum is in Algiers for a conference on security in the Sahel desert region.
APS quotes Bazoum as saying that "several convoys of 10 vehicles each" reached Niger in the past four days.
Earlier in the week, Niger officials confirmed that Gadhafi's security chief had crossed the desert into the country Niger on Monday.
