Somalis flee Libya violence

Hundreds caught up in the unrest escape to refugee camps at the border with Tunisia.


    The UN refugee agency is struggling as the thousands fleeing Libya's uprising continue to flood into temporary camps near the Libyan-Tunisian border.

    Hundreds are Somalis who have been caught up in the violence.

    But their lives have been marred with constant hardship; and many prefer to remain in refugee camps, living under harsh conditions, instead of returning home.
