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.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
