DEHIBA, Tunisia - Fighting between Libyan rebels and forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi spilled into Tunisia on Thursday as rebels lost control of the crossing they seized last week, witnesses said.

"Fighting broke out on the Tunisian territory, in Dehiba, after Gaddafi's forces attacked the border crossing," said Ali, a Tunisian involved in helping Libyans arriving in Dehiba.

Reuters photographer Zoubeir Soussi said Gaddafi's forces now controlled the crossing.
