Mauritanian authorities have handed over Muammar Gaddafi’s ex-spy chief to Libya nearly five months after he was arrested for entering the country illegally, state television reported Wednesday.

“Mauritanian authorities hand over ex-Libyan spy chief Abdullah al-Senussi to Libya,” read a newsflash on the screen written in Arabic.
