In the past few months there have been many reports regarding Saif. Some have claimed that he was captured, others that he was dead and yet more that he had fled Libya already.
The latest reports on October 25, 2011, claim that he is making his way to the African country of Niger.
There are reports that the ethnic Tuaregs are helping Saif gain a safe passage out of Libya. The President of Niger is said to have been liaising with the Tuaregs who were staunch supporters of Gaddafi. It is thought that Saif will pass over the border with Algeria and then make his way into Niger.
Remaining living family members of Muammar Gaddafi are already in the relative safety of Niger. Saif is wanted by the ICC, international criminal court. Niger's President Boula said, "If he comes here, the government will accept him, but the government will also need to respect its international obligations. It's up to him to decide (whether to stay on the run or come to Niger)."
