Entry Description

In an attempt to escape the civil war in Libya, refugees have overrun the border crossing of Ras Ajdir in Tunisia. Hundreds of thousands arrived in overcrowded cars and buses and on foot, dragging suitcases and bringing whatever belongings they could carry. Most endured weeks living in camps set up near the border in Tunisia.
