Norwegian security police say Moammar Gadhafi's Ukrainian nurse is seeking political asylum in Norway.

Security service spokesman Trond Hugubakken told The Associated Press on Thursday that Halyna Kolotnytska is currently in Norway and has filed an application to immigration authorities.

Kolotnytska left Libya in February due to the unrest and returned to Ukraine, where she stayed with her daughter and mother in a modest apartment in a 5-story building in the town of Brovary near Kiev.

It is not known whether her family went with her to Norway.

A United States diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks last year said Kolotnytska always traveled with Gadhafi because she "knows his routine."
