Refugee camp attacked in Tunisia

Refugees who fled Libya seek another haven after local residents burn down their camp.

    Thousands of people who fled the fighting in Libya have spent weeks living in tents in neighbouring Tunisia - unable to return to their homes.  

    But after local residents attacked, burned, and looted the Chucha refugee camp in southern Tunisia, many are once again struggling to find another safe haven.

    The arson attack was reportedly made after the refugees staged a protest calling for resettlement to Europe. They had blocked the main road to the border with Libya, angering the Tunisians.
