Egyptians flee Libya violence

Many Egyptians are returning to their native country, bringing all they can carry.

     

    Many of the people fleeing the unrest in Libya are making their way to the border with Egypt.

    So far only Egyptians have been let through, no Libyans.

    Egyptian workers are returning to their native country, bringing all they can carry - televisions, refrigerators and washing machines.

    On the Egyptian side, volunteers and charities are setting up convoys, planning to go into Libya. They are bringing much-needed medical equipment, including thousands of litres of blood.

    Jamal Elshayyal reports from Salloum, on the Egyptian side of the border.
