Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali arrived in Libya on Monday (January 7th). Accompanied by the defence, interior and foreign affairs ministers, and the army chief-of-staff, Jebali will be in Libya for one day to discuss the month-long closure of the Ras Jedir and Dhiba border posts, TAP reported.
Tunisian demonstrators on Saturday set tires on fire and blocked the road leading to the border town of Ben Guerdane, known as a major market for goods brought in from Libya. Police used teargas to disperse the protesters.
Large-scale protests continued on Sunday. According to AFP, most of the demonstrators were Ben Guerdane merchants.
