With the Libyan rebel forces — well, at this point they/re really the new Libyan government — about to move on Bani Walid, reports say a convoy of 200 to 250 armored vehicles from Libya have moved into northern Niger. This reportedly includes some senior Qadhafi security figures.
Burkina Faso, meanwhile, has reportedly offered Qadhafi asylum, If the convoy is seeking to get to Burkina, it raises questions about whether Qadhafi is himself headed there. He has cultivated the Burkinabe government for years, but is he really ready to spend the rest of his life in Ouagadougou?
I think we'll know much more soon.
