Libya has deported 360 Egyptians who arrived on two flights with forged visas, state news agency Lana said on Sunday.

The Egyptians landed at Misrata airport in central Libya and were sent back to Egypt on the same planes, the agency added, without giving any more details.


Libya, facing turmoil two years after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, has been trying to clamp down on a trade in forged visas for workers from Egypt or other neighbouring countries looking to come to the country.
