Thousands of foreign workers continued their exodus across the border into Tunisia, fleeing violence sparked by an uprising against Col Muammar Qaddafi. The refugees, primarily Egyptians, had to wait at the border or at an improvised camp nearby until a bus could take them to the airport in Tunis, but the number of people waiting far exceeded the seats available on the buses.
