ALGERIA. Libyan strongman Muammar Gadhafi's wife, two sons and a daughter entered Algeria on Monday, the foreign ministry in Algiers announced.

"The wife of Muammar Gadhafi, Safiya, his daughter Aisha, and sons Hannibal and Mohammed, accompanied by their children, entered Algeria at 08:45 am (0745 GMT) through the Algeria-Libyan border," the ministry said in a statement published by APS news agency, giving no information on the whereabouts of Kadhafi himself.

"This information has been brought to the attention of the United Nations Secretary General, the security council president and Mahmoud Jibril, president of the executive council of the National Transitional Council (NTC)," the interim administrative body set up by the rebels fighting Kadhafi for power in Libya, the ministry statement said.

Earlier Monday the ministry published another statement announcing that Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci had met Jibril on the margins of an Arab League meeting, though Algeria has not formally recognised the NTC as the ruling power in Libya.

So far, Algiers has adopted a stance of strict neutrality on the conflict in its neighbour, leading some among the rebels rebels to accuse it of supporting the Gadhafi regime.
