Egypt evacuates citizens from Libya

Post by Strawberry on Tue Feb 22, 2011 8:01 am


Egypt's army has set up two field hospitals on the border with Libya near the Salloum border-crossing town to receive returning Egyptians.

Libyan guards have withdrawn from their side of the boundary following anti-government protests, the army said on its Facebook page on Monday.

Hossam Zaki, Egypt's foreign ministry spokesman, said at least one million Egyptians reside in Libya where increasingly bloody battles between Libyan security forces and protesters have been taking place.

At least 100 buses carrying Egyptians are making their way to the Libya-Egyptian border, Zaki said.
