An armed convoy believed to be carrying loyalists to Col. Moammar Gadhafi crossed the Libyan border into Niger late on Monday. It is unclear whether the fugitive Libyan leader or his family were in the convoy. The loyalists may be heading to Burkina Faso, which has offered asylum to Gadhafi. The BBC's Jon Leyne, who is in Benghazi, says it would have been impossible for such a large convoy to leave Libya without NATO turning a blind eye.
