TUNIS - Soldiers loyal to Muammar Gaddafi who crossed the border and clashed with Tunisian security forces on Friday have been returned to Libya, Tunisia's Defense Ministry said.
The Libyan soldiers entered the Tunisian town of Dehiba during fighting against anti-Gaddafi rebels for control of the nearby border post.
In a statement published on the official news agency TAP, Tunisia's Defense Ministry said the army "intervened and stopped the advance of some members of Gaddafi's forces who were gathered up and returned to Libyan territory."
It did not say how many soldiers were sent back.
