TRIPOLI - Tunisia has extradited former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's prime minister to Libya, a Libyan security official said on Sunday.

Mohammed al-Ahwal told Reuters that a helicopter transferred Al Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi to Tripoli on Sunday.

He served as the Libyan dictator's prime minister from 2006 until he fled to neighboring Tunisia around the time that rebel fighters took the capital Tripoli in August.
