CAIRO: Six Egyptians were killed at the Ras Jadeer border crossing between Libya and Tunisia Thursday, and others were injured, Sky News Arabia reported.

The Egyptians were trying to enter Tunisia to return to Egypt after fleeing escalating fighting between rival Libyan militias.

Twenty-three Egyptian workers were killed last week after a grad rocket struck their house in Tripoli.

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry has called on Egyptians residing in Libya to head to the Libyan-Tunisian border, as Tunisian authorities have agreed to accept stranded Egyptians.

Three-hundred and nineteen Egyptian workers arrived in Egypt Thursday from Tunisia after fleeing there.
