MARSA MATROUH, April 9 (Aswat Masriya) The Libyan authorities only allowed the entry of food trucks into its land from Egypt through the Salloum international border on Tuesday, reported the state news agency MENA.

The authorities prevented the entry of any other goods into Libya for security reasons, which resulted into the crowding of trucks near the border.

Libya sent the Egyptian side a notification of its decision to only allow food because of the recurring security disruptions inside the country.

Many Egyptian drivers and trucks have been recently captured by gunmen inside Libya and unidentified assailants have killed around 10 Egyptian workers in Benghanzi during the past few months.
