TRIPOLI/TUNIS - Libya said on Sunday it would secure the area near its border with Tunisia after Tunis closed all of its crossing points, blocking Tripoli's main supply route, after clashes between militiamen and border guards.
Tunisian officials have said the closure of the second of the two crossings on Saturday was necessary after armed Libyans had exchanged fire with border guards and had also attempted to enter Tunisia undetected.
The incidents highlight Libya's lawlessness three months after the fall of Tripoli. The provisional government has yet to disarm and make a single national army out of militias that still roam the country and clash with each other.
