Libya-Tunisia border closed amid trade dispute

Travellers are stranded and deliveries interrupted as the two governments work to settle the issue.

    A trade dispute between Libya and Tunisia has halted cross-border traffic for 10 days.

    Trucks have been unable to go through the border crossing for over a week, disrupting business and sowing confusion.

    Tunisians who work in Libya aren't sure they'll be able to re-enter after going home for a visit, while Libyan tourists have been turned back and told to go home.
