Egyptian security forces arrested a close aide and a cousin of Libya's former dictator Moammar Gaddafi on Tuesday following an hours-long siege of his home in central Cairo.
Gaddafi's former intelligence official Ahmed Ahmed Qaddaf Al-Dam, who is among dozens wanted for their role in Libya's 2011 civil war, surrendered to Egyptian security forces, they said.
Police had surrounded his home in the Cairo neighborhood of Zamalek before dawn. Shots were fired during the siege, but witnesses gave conflicting reports as to whether Qaddaf Al-Dam opened fire in the air to drive police away or police had fired the shots as they tried to storm the building. There were no injuries reported.
