ATHENS - A Libyan jet flew through Greek controlled air space briefly on Wednesday and headed to Egypt but there was no information on whether it belonged to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, a Greek foreign ministry official said.

"A Libyan Falcon jet reported to Athens FIR (Flight Information Region) that it was passing through and heading to Egypt. It was in Greek FIR for about 15 minutes. We do not know who was on the plane or who it belongs to," the official, who requested anonymity, told Reuters.
