NIAMEY (Reuters) - Muammar Gaddafi's son Saadi entered the territory of Libya's southern neighbor Niger on Sunday, Niger's justice minister said.

"He was in a convoy of nine people. They were intercepted heading in the direction of Agadez," Marou Adamou told a news conference, referring to the northern town through which at least two previous convoys of Gaddafi loyalists have entered in the past week.
