From the Telegraph:
Following an emergency EU meeting of foreign ministers on the situation in Libya, Mr Hague was asked if Britain, or other Western countries, knew if Col. Gaddafi had left Tripoli.
â€śAbout whether Col. Gaddafi, is in Venezuela, I have no information that says he is although I have seen some information that suggests he is on his way there,â€ť he said.
British officials stressed that Mr Hague was referring â€śnot to media reports but information from other channelsâ€ť. â€śThis is credible information,â€ť said a diplomat.
