AGADEZ - A new group of 14 Muammar Gaddafi officials including General Ali Kana, a Tuareg who was one of Gaddafi's close guards in charge of his southern troops, are in Niger's northern city of Agadez, Niger security sources told Reuters on Friday.

Two sources said the group included four top officials, amongst them two generals. The identity of the other general has not been confirmed.

A Reuters reporter in Agadez said the four top officials were staying at a hotel in Agadez owned by Gaddafi.

"The group arrived in four four-wheel-drive vehicles on Thursday afternoon," one of the sources said, adding that they were accompanied by Nigerien security forces.
