TUNIS - Thirteen Libyan officers and soldiers, including a general, turned themselves over to the Tunisian military at a border crossing after clashes with Libyan rebels, Tunisia's state news agency TAP said on Thursday.

TAP cited a military source, but gave no further details.

Earlier on Thursday, two witnesses in the southern Tunisian border town of Dehiba said the rebels appeared to have taken control of the Libyan side of the border crossing after fighting with forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi.
