ALGIERS - Muammar Gaddafi's daughter Aisha gave birth to a girl on Tuesday, a source close to Algeria's health ministry said, a day after Algiers granted her and other Gaddafi family members safe haven.

Algeria announced on Monday that Gaddafi's wife, two of his sons and his daughter had crossed into its territory. Libya's ruling interim council demanded they be handed back to face trial.

Gaddafi's only biological daughter, Aisha ran a charitable foundation and in 2004 joined a team of lawyers defending former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

There had not been any public announcement that Aisha , a lawyer in her mid-30s, was pregnant.
