Egypt: Local Authorities Shoot Three Egyptians in Salloum

Three Egyptians were injured on Wednesday after Libyan authorities at the Libyan Mesa'ed port in Salloum shot them.

The Libyan authorities earlier in the day fired shots in the air after they lost control over the port's administration due to the overcrowding of vehicles crossing from Egypt's Salloum to Libya's Mosa'ed port.

Members of the Libyan security also set cargoes on the vehicles of Egyptians on fire.
