68. Gaddafi's ex-premier jailed after fleeing Libya

TRIPOLI, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Libya's neighbour Tunisia jailed Muammar Gaddafi's former prime minister on Thursday, and Libya's new rulers said they were tightening their grip on the desert towns where Gaddafi himself may be hiding.

In the highest profile detention of a Gaddafi associate to date, a Tunisian court sentenced ex-prime minister Al Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi to six months in jail on charges of illegally entering the country on Wednesday evening.


"(He) was arrested because he entered Tunisian territory illegally ... He did not have an entry stamp in his passport."

The justice minister in Libya's new government said Tripoli would request that the former prime minister be extradited to stand trial in Libya.

"Baghdadi directly oversaw the operations which had to do with the killings of Libyans," the minister, Mohammed al-Alagi, said on Al Arabiya television station.
