Nearly 1,000 Chinese nationals working in Libya arrived on Thursday at Tunisia's Ras El Jedir border check point, some 600 km from the capital.

They were met with a warm welcome of Chinese embassy staff. With the help of the Chinese embassy in Tunis, the Chinese expatriates who work for two Chinese companies, were driven to hotels on the island of Djerba.

They arrived at the Tunisian-Libyan border on Wednesday at 13: 30 p.m., but were only allowed to cross the border into Tunisia 10 hours later due to the turmoil prevailing in Libya and the lack of cooperation of Libyan customs.

Tens of thousands of people have crossed the Ras El Jedir cross point which is witnessing an increasing influx of migrants fleeing from the violence in Libya.
