Libya-Tunisia Border Post Re-Opens

The main border crossing between Libya and Tunisia has reopened on Monday.

AFP reports that Tripoli decided to close the Ras Jedir crossing in early March, a decision thought to have been linked to the large number of vehicles loaded with cheap fuel arriving in Tunisia; Tripoli said the crossing had been closed by "mutual agreement" pending "security guarantees" for Libyans living in Tunisia.

The interior ministers of the neighbouring nations were expected to meet in Tunis on Tuesday to draw up "a series of measures" relating to the Ras Jedir crossing.
