Mexico says Gadhafi son tried to enter country
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico said Wednesday it has broken up a plot to smuggle a son of late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, al-Saadi Gadhafi, and his family into Mexico under false names and with false documents.
The elaborate plan, which allegedly involved two Mexicans, a Canadian and a Danish suspect, also involved opening bank accounts and buying properties in Mexico that were to have been used as safe houses by Gadhafi, Interior Secretary Alejandro Poire said.
The plan was uncovered by Mexican intelligence agents in early September and the suspects were arrested and placed under house arrest while they are being investigated for falsification of documents, Poire told a news conference.
Al-Saadi Gadhafi fled Libya and is living under house arrest in the Western African country of Niger.
