Nouakchott - Mauritanian authorities have charged Abdullah al-Senussi, Muammar Gaddafi's intelligence chief, with attempting to enter the country on forged documents, a judicial source told dpa on Monday.

Al-Senussi, who appeared on Sunday in a Nouakchott court amid heavy security, was remanded to the city's central prison on Monday, the source said.

The long-time spy chief disappeared from Libya after Gaddafi's fall. He was arrested in the Mauritanian capital in March, after arriving on a flight from Morocco with a false Malian passport, according to Mauritanian authorities.

Libyan authorities have asked Mauritania to extradite al-Senussi, who is also wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of crimes against humanity for his role in the Gaddafi regime's use of force to suppress the Libyan uprising.
