One of the sons of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi is in hiding on an island off the coast of Venezuela, a politician in the South American country has claimed.
Orlando Fernandez Medina said that sources within the Venezuelan government had told him that one of Gaddafi's sons arrived on the island of Margarita around two days ago.
Medina said that it had not been disclosed to him which of the dictator's sons had flown into exile.
It was also reported by the Venezuelan media that one of Gaddafi's wives and four of her daughters were also now on Margarita Island. Meanwhile, Gaddafi's daughter Aisha has dismissed reports that she tried to flee to Malta.
