DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Libya's foreign minister says the widow of the late ruler Moammar Gadhafi and other family members have been granted asylum in Oman.
Mohamed Abdelaziz told reporters in Qatar on Monday that the family members had moved from Algeria following an asylum offer by Oman.
He gave no further details, but it's believed that Gadhafi's widow Safiya, three of the late leader's children as well as grandchildren left Algeria late last year.
Abdelaziz said it was "too soon" to discuss whether Libya would eventually seek their extradition. But he defended Oman's right to host the Gadhafi family members.
One of Gadhafi's son, Seif al-Islam, was captured by rebels.
Omani officials have made no official comment.
Abdelaziz and other top regional envoys have been in Qatar ahead of an Arab League summit.
