Gadhafi loyalists flee to Niger

The Takeaway
A convoy of over 200 vehicles believed to be carrying loyalists to Col. Moammar Gadhafi crossed Libya's southern border into Niger on Tuesday. The loyalists are thought to be heading to Burkina Faso, which has offered the fugitive Libyan leader asylum. A spokesman for Gadhafi said he remains in Libya. Questions have arisen as to why NATO would allow the convoy to escape. Rebel negotiators are pressing loyalists in Bani Walid to surrender peacefully by Saturday.
