MEXICO CITY, Mexico (Dec. 07) – An alleged plan to smuggle one of the sons of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and few other family members to Mexico has been foiled by Mexican intelligence, high profile authorities claimed on Wednesday.

According to details; the 38-year-old al-Saadi Gaddafi and few family members were planning to enter in Mexico with fake names and fake documents.
According to Alejandro Poire, the interior secretary, the aides – including two Mexican, a Canadian and a Danish suspect - in this foiled plan opened bank accounts and got involved in buying properties in Mexico that were to have been used as safe places by al-Saadi Gaddafi being in Mexico.
Several people have been arrested as a result of unfolding the plan in September before it could be materialized.
Al-Saadi Gaddafi, the departed Gaddafi's third son, is currently living under house arrest in the Western African country of Niger. Saadi Gaddafi is one of four Gaddafi family members who escaped from war-torn Libya during the revolt. His mother Safia, older brother Muhammad and sister Ayesha are all in Algeria.
Saadi Gaddafi reportedly led his own mercenaries and was indicted of directing open fire on civilians during the early phases of the rebellion that eventually led to the fall of his father's 42-year regime.
