Cairo, Sept 3:   Algerian authorities have decided to move the family members of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to the capital Algiers over safety concerns, Egyptian website Al-Ahram reported.


Gaddafi's wife Safia, daughter Aisha, and two sons - Muhammad and Hannibal arrived in the Algerian southeastern border zone Aug 29.

Gaddafi's family members will be under house arrest in Algiers, reports said.
 
They were taken to Algeria by a team of 35 former South African Special Forces operatives, who were paid $15,000 each for the operation, Johannesburg's New Age newspaper reported.
 
The paper cited an unidentified person who was asked to take part in the mission, but he declined.
 
The rebel-led National Transitional Council (NTC) is demanding the extradition of Gaddafi's family from Algeria.
 
Gaddafi's daughter Aisha has given birth to a girl since arriving in Algeria. Media reports suggested her pregnancy was a major factor in the decision by the Algerian authorities to grant the group refuge.
