Refugees trapped on Libya-Tunisia border

Many refugees mainly from Somalia and Eritrea are stuck in temporary camps on the Tunisian Libyan border.



    As the fighting continues in Libya, hundreds of people are fleeing the country everyday. Many head to Tunsia where they are being housed in temporary camps.

    Some refugees have lost patience, risking everything to travel back into Libya and get on boats for Italy and Malta.

    UNHCR says more than two thousand non-Libyans have fled Tripoli by sea in the past week. Most of them Eritreans and Somalis.

    Those that remain in the camp, hope their quiet and dignified protests will gain international attention
