CAIRO — A Cairo airport official says authorities have extradited two Libyan officials from the regime of deposed dictator Moammar Gadhafi back to their home country.

It is the first time in years that Egypt has conducted such a high-profile extradition.

The official says the two — 71-year-old former ambassador to Cairo Ali Maria — and another ex-official — 44-year-old Mohammed Ibrahim Gadhafi — were handcuffed after resisting the transfer.

The two were arrested a week ago along with a top Gadhafi aide and cousin Ahmed Qaddaf al-Dam.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

Since Gadhafi was ousted and killed in 2011, Libya has demanded that Egypt handover dozens of officials from the former regime.
