> Nigeria granted asylum to the son of Gaddafi
One of the world’s main news was the death of the colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who was killed on the 20th of October, when he tried to escape from his native city of Sirte. The Colonel's relatives are going to sue at law, accusing NATO of the deliberate killing and of the ill-treatment of prisoners. According to the lawyer of the family, the actions of the international organizations can be qualified as a war crime. UN demands to investigate the circumstances of the death of al-Gaddafi said.
Meanwhile the situation in the region continues to be very complicated. The armed conflicts between forces of the Transitional national council of Libya, who participated in the overthrow of the regime of Muammar Gaddafi, broke out in 30 km to the west of Tripoli. As reported by the Libyan newspaper "New Kurine", clashes between the "revolutionaries" of the city Az-Zaviy and of the region of El-Maya began on Thursday’s evening and lasted till Friday.
It is reported that Nigeria granted asylum to the son of Gaddafi. It should be noted, however, that the motives for such a decision were rather simple. The president of the country, who is on a visit in South Africa at the present moment, confessed that they had agreed to offer Saadi Gaddafi asylum on humanitarian grounds. The other son of the Libyan leader, Seif Al-Islam, is not currently on the territory of the Nigeria.
The President of Nigeria said that he would give one of the sons of Colonel Gaddafi - Saadi, entering the country in August 2011, the status of refugee. At the end of September Interpol issued a warrant for the arrest of Saadi Gaddafi. This happened after the request of the Libyan authorities that accused the son of the former Libyan leader colonel Gaddafi in the embezzlement of another person’s property by force or under the threat of arms, when he headed the Football federation of Libya.
