Qaddafi daughter torches Algerian presidential house: report

Published: Updated:

Aisha Qaddafi, daughter of the slain Libyan dictator, has set fire to a presidential residence in southern Algeria, where she has taken refuge since August 2011, Ennahar newspaper reported Monday.

She had occasionally damaged furniture and parts of the residence when she was angry, but this latest incident, which occurred three days ago, was the most serious, the Algerian newspaper reported.

Qaddafi had previously destroyed the shelves of a library in the residence, and damaged pictures of Algerian President Abdul Aziz Bouteflika, Ennahar added. On one occasion, she reportedly attacked presidential guards who were trying to calm her down.

Last week, Oman said it was granting asylum to the late Libyan dictator’s family members who are taking refuge in Algeria. The request was granted “provided they don’t engage in political activities,” an Omani government official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Qaddafi and her brother Hannibal are wanted by Interpol after the Libyan government requested an arrested warrant against them.
