Amadou Morou, who is also the minister of justice, told reporters at a news conference Sunday: "I wish to announce to you that one of Gadhafi's sons -- Al-Saadi Gadhafi -- was intercepted in the north of Niger."
He said that the son had come in a convoy along with nine other people and that they were traveling in the direction of the desert outpost of Agadez in the center of the country.
