Libya guards fire warning shots as crowd tries to storm border

Tunisian police stand guard in front of Egyptians fleeing the violence in Libya at the southern Tunisian border crossing of Ras Jedir on August 1, 2014Libyan border guards fired warning shots Friday to keep back a crowd of people trying to enter Tunisia as they fled the conflict in Libya, a Tunisian army officer said. A Tunisian official was wounded by a stray bullet at the Ras Jdir crossing, where the incident took place and which was shut after the clashes. The Tunisian foreign ministry urged its estimated 50,000 to 60,000 nationals in neighbouring Libya to leave “as soon as possible” because of violence that has raged there since mid-July. The Tunisian army officer said Libyan guards opened fire to push back hundreds of people attempting to force their way across the frontier.
