Tripoli, 19 September 2014:
Egypt’s Foreign Ministry has recalled its consular staff from the Ras Jedir border now that they . . .[restrict]have finished assisting Egyptians who fled Libya via Tunisia during the recent violence.
The consular staff are reported to have assisted 16,289 Egyptians who used the Ras Jedir crossing and were repatriated in a massive airlift operation during July and August.
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry has warned Egyptians about further travel to Libya and asked those transporting goods there to avoid Tobruk, saying they are concerned about potential security issues in the town where the House of Representatives is meeting.
They have advised Egyptians still living in Libya to avoid areas where clashes are taking place. For those who still want to leave Libya, they have told them to either travel by air, or attempt to cross into Egypt at the Salloum border crossing.
Just yesterday an Egyptian taylor, a Christian, was shot and killed in his shop in the Al-Berka neighbourhood of Benghazi. [/restrict]
