Gaddafi family members leave Algeria for Egypt
Azerbaijan , Baku, Sept. 26 / Trend A. Isgandarov/
Eight members of Moammar Gaddafi's family, including her doughter Aisha, left Algeria last weekend where they fled to on Aug. 29, Algerian Khabar newspaper reported.
"They have left for Egypt," the newspaper said.
Aisha, a 35-year-old lawyer, nicknamed the 'Claudia Schiffer of North Africa' because of her bleached blonde hair and European education, had a baby girl after evading rebel forces in her home country.
Mass demonstrations demanding for the ouster of Qaddafi, who has been ruling the country for more than 40 years, started in Libya in mid-February and subsequently grew into armed confrontation between the government forces and the rebels.
On August 23, 2011, Gaddafi lost control of Tripoli, and effective control of Libya with the rebels' capture of the Bab al-Azizia compound.
NTC forces now control most of Libyan territory, including the capital Tripoli. They have been trying to take several cities controlled by pro-Gaddafi troops, including Bani Walid and Sirte.
