Gaddafi's last PM Ali al-Mahmoudi arrested in Tunisia
Tunis, Sept 23 (ANI): Fallen Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's last prime minister has been arrested in Tunisia.
Al-Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi was caught near the country's border with Algeria and jailed for six months for illegal entry. He is likely to be handed over to Libya to face investigation later, The Guardian reports.
Gaddafi and his sons Saif al-Islam and Mutasim have yet to be captured, but are still believed to be in Libya. His other family members have fled to Algeria and Niger.
Other prominent Gaddafi supporters escaped to Niger after the fall of the key southern town Sebha on Wednesday, a NTC military spokesman said.
Al-Mahmoudi remained prime minister until the fall of Tripoli, when he crossed into Tunisia. He later appeared to try to create the impression that he had defected when he told an Arabic TV channel he supported the rebels. But most Libyans are likely to see him as a man who stayed loyal to Gaddafi almost to the end. (ANI)
