TUNIS - HUNDREDS of fearful Tunisians fled what they called 'real carnage' in Libya on Sunday to head home via the coastal Ras Jdir border crossing, a union official told AFP. The Tunisians said they fled for their own safety after what they described as 'real carnage under way in Libya', Houcine Betaieb, a member of Tunisia's influential UGTT trade union, told AFP. 'Hundreds of Tunisians left Libya on Sunday through the Ras Jdir border post. There are a lot of people and there is a big bottleneck in the area,' he said. He said five buses had been made available free-of-charge to the fleeing Tunisians, many of whom left so quickly there were carrying no money. 'These are people who work there, who have left Libya out of fear that something would happen to them,' he said. -- AFP
