Libyans flee to Tunisia as fight for Tripoli intensifies

While many Libyans are trapped because of the fighting around Tripoli, others are crossing the border into Tunisia to seek safety.

    As forces loyal to renegade General Khalifa Haftar and Libya's UN-based government fight for control of Tripoli, hundreds of residents are trying to flee the capital city.

    Many Libyans in Tripoli have been cut off because of the fighting but others are crossing the border into Tunisia to seek safety.
