South Africa Hasn’t Brokered Qaddafi Exile Deal From Libya, Monyela Says

South Africa hasn’t brokered any deal enabling Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi’s exile, International Relations Ministry spokesman Clayson Monyela said.

The London-based Times newspaper reported that the southern African nation brokered an agreement where Qaddafi passed through Niger to temporary exile in Burkina Faso, citing an intelligence official that it didn’t identify.

South Africa “doesn’t know what the Times is talking about,” Monyela said by phone today.
