Libya exodus gathers pace as Tripoli clashes kill 22

Foreigners fleeing the violence in Libya enter Tunisia through the southern border crossing at Ras Jedir on August 3, 2014The exodus of foreigners from Libya gathered pace Sunday as the government said at least 22 people were killed in clashes in Tripoli and warned of a “worsening humanitarian situation”. Thousands of Egyptians seeking to flee the strife-torn North African country were being airlifted home after being allowed into neighbouring Tunisia, many after a wait of several days at a border crossing. On the political front, a formal opening session of Libya’s elected parliament scheduled for Monday hung in the balance, with Islamists insisting on a Tripoli venue and nationalists calling for it to be held in the eastern city of Tobruk. The parliament, elected on June 25, is to take over from the interim General National Congress (GNC) chosen in the wake of the 2011 revolt which toppled longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi.
