RAS JDIR, Tunisia - Tunisian authorities reopened the main border crossing into Libya on Sunday, and dozens of vehicles moved through, a Reuters correspondent on the scene said.

Libyan rebels wrested the Libyan side of the Ras Jdir crossing from soldiers loyal to Muammar Gaddafi on Friday. The crossing controls a road that is a key supply route from Tunisia to Tripoli.
