The wife and three children of fugitive Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have entered Algeria, the Algerian foreign ministry says. Algeria's APS news agency quoted the foreign ministry as saying that Gaddafi's wife Safia, daughter Ayesha and sons Muhammad and Hannibal had crossed into Algeria early on Monday. The report came as rebels in Libya were trying to overcome the pockets of resistance by Gaddafi loyalists. Col. Gaddafi's whereabouts are unknown. Meanwhile, a ship with hundreds of prisoners, released from Libyan jails, arrived in Benghazi on Sunday. Host Marco Werman speaks with the BBC's John Leyne, who was there and spoke with some of released detainees and their families.
