Mexican prosecutors say they broke up not one, but two Indiana Jones-style plots to "extract" the son of late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi from Libya as his father's regime crumbled.
Assistant Attorney General Jose Cuitlahuac Salinas says the plan to bring al-Saadi Gadhafi to Mexico involved piles of stolen passports, white-knuckle flights with pilots who refused to land in war-torn Libya and luxury homes bought under false names in Mexico.
Salinas said Wednesday the ring involved a Canadian woman, a Danish man and two Mexican suspects charged with attempted immigrant trafficking, falsifying documents and organized crime.
Salinas says the ring hired pilots to fly from Mexico to Kosovo, Tunis and on to Libya.
