Mexico 'stops entry' of Libya's Saadi Gaddafi
Source: BBC News

The Mexican authorities say they have stopped a plot by a criminal organisation to smuggle one of the sons of Libya's ex-leader Col Muammar Gaddafi into the country.

Saadi Gaddafi has been under house arrest in the West African state of Niger since he fled Libya in September.

Several people have been arrested.

2. Thou shalt not judge.
He's not his dad, or the (br)other assholes we've come to know.

We're better than that.

7. thanks. I was feeling like a bad, judgemental person for a minute.

6. I agree, I say we let the Libyans choose the punishment, seeing as they were the ones most affected
...by his actions. Pretty sure 'house arrest' will be off the table.

3. The fact that he would seek to 'hide' right under our noses in a country bordering our own...
...speaks volumes about the US / Mexican relationship.

And the state of Mexico today.
