BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Monday he had seen some information to suggest Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi had fled the country and was on his way to Venezuela.

“You asked me earlier about whether Colonel Gaddafi is in Venezuela,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a European Union foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels.

“I have no information that says he is, but I have seen some information that suggests he is on his way there at the moment.”

Diplomats said Hague was not referring to rumors circulating in the media about Gaddafi’s whereabouts, but to separate sources for the information.
