Gaddafi's wife Safiya and his daughter Aisha have fled from Libya to Tunisia, Al-Jazeera reported on Wednesday, citing a source in Tunisia's Defense Ministry.
According to these sources, Safiya and Aisha crossed the Libyan-Tunisian border a few days ago and are currently at a refugee center on the island of Djerba.
The revolt in Libya against Gaddafi's forty-year rule, which began in mid-February, has already claimed thousands of lives, with Gaddafi's troops maintaining their combat capabilities despite NATO airstrikes against them.
The airstrike on a wealthy residential area in Tripoli a week ago killed Gaddafi's youngest son and three of his grandchildren, as well as several friends and neighbors.
