Libya's Gaddafi still elusive as loyalists flee to Niger

Col Muammar Gaddafi's security chief is among several former Libyan officials who have arrived in the capital of Niger, Niamey, according to officials there.

They say the man, Mansour Daw, entered the country on Sunday and travelled via the desert city of Agadez.

Meanwhile, a convoy said to be carrying dozens of heavily armed Gaddafi loyalists as well as gold and cash, has also crossed the border.

Niger officials say Col Gaddafi is not believed to be travelling with it.
