Mexico says it has broken up an international plot to smuggle Al-Saadi Gaddafi, son of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, and his family members into Mexico under false names. Mexican Interior Secretary Alejandro Poire announced on Wednesday that the plan had involved four suspects including two Mexicans, a Dane and a Canadian.

The suspects opened bank accounts and bought property in Mexico that were to have been used as safe houses by Al-Saadi.

The plot was uncovered in early September as Al-Saadi was fleeing Libya shortly after his father’s ouster. He never made it to Mexico, but did reach the Western African country of Niger.

Al-Saadi has been well known for his love of professional soccer.
