The Libyan Interior Minister has arrived in Egypt with members of his family, official sources at Cairo airport told the Reuters news agency, amid reports that he was abandoning the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
   
They said the minister arrived with nine members of his family, telling security officials at the airport that he was on holiday.
   
Reports have been circulating for hours that the minister had abandoned the embattled Libyan leader, who is facing NATO-backed revolt by rebels seeking to bring an end to his four decades in power.
