A lucky few flee Libya 'nightmare' to reach Tunisia

Libyan women, fleeing violence in their country, wait next to their luggage after entering Tunisia through the southern border crossing at Ras Jedir on August 2, 2014Baby on her shoulder, suitcase in hand, Khadija, a 34-year-old Tunisian, is rushing to escape from the “Libyan nightmare” through the Ras Jedir border crossing to reach her homeland. When Khadija arrived at Ras Jedir from Tripoli on Friday she found the crossing closed after hundreds of foreign workers tried to storm it and force their way through. About 50 Libyan-registered vehicles were granted passage, along with a smaller number of people on foot carrying their bags, before Tunisia again closed the border after just a few hours. In a 4X4 car, with his wife and two children, 54-year-old Libyan Mohammed Badri tells how he had to wait 17 hours.
