I just saw this report and am wondering whether it means that Gadhafi’s wife and daughter have fled Libya for the interim.
It appears that they left Libya on the 14th May and crossed into Tunisia. There is no mention of them defecting, but it does seem very odd that they have chosen to move into Tunisia. Maybe they see that the writing is on the wall and they want to protect themselves.
UPDATE: Libyan officials, as is to be expected have denied the reports that the Gadhafi women are in Tunisia. They are also denying that the oil minister has defected.
I personally do not place much value on anything that comes out of Libya because the regime are shocking liars.
