NIAMEY, Niger (AP) — The spokesman for Niger’s government announced that Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s son Al-Saadi has entered the country via the northern desert separating the landlocked African nation from Libya.

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.
