Tripoli, March 21: Three hundred and fifty Syrian refugees, fleeing the chaos in their country, have been finally allowed to enter . . .[restrict]Libya after the intervention of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry. They had been camped out on the Egyptian border town of Salloum for more than a month.
During that period they were being looked after by local Egyptian people who opened their homes to them.
The Libyan authorities had refused, a month ago, to allow the Syrians to enter Libya after Egyptian Authorities had given them permission to cross Egypt into Libya for work. They were refused entry at first because of Libya’s internal problems.
The permission to enter Libya was given on Tuesday. [/restrict]
