OUAGADOUGOU- Burkina Faso's government said on Tuesday that it had not received a request for exile from Libya's Muammar Gaddafi and the ousted leader was not expected in the West African state.
"Gaddafi in not in Burkina Faso and we have not been approached for any exile demand. Burkina (Faso) has not been informed of Gaddafi's arrival. We are not expecting him," Communications Minister Alain Edouard Traore said on state television.
French and Nigerien military sources said a large convoy of Libyan vehicles had crossed into Niger on Monday and the French source said that it was possible that Gaddafi and his son and would-be heir, Saif al-Islam, could join the convoy later and head for neighboring Burkina Faso.
