Foreign workers in limbo in Tunisia

Hundreds who went to Libya for work, then left as refugees during the war, are now being denied refugee status.

    A few hundred people are all that is left of the exodus from the war in Libya.

    Ffirst, they left their own countries in search of work in Libya, then they left Libya for their own safety. Now, denied refugee status in Tunisia or abroad, they live a life in limbo.

    They are neither willing, nor able, to go home. For each, it is either too dangerous, costly or worse than their current situation.
