Libya-Tunisia Border Closed

Tunisians living close to Ras Ajdir have been harassing Libyans travelling into their country due to the clamp down on smuggling oil and other subsidized commodities across the border.

The Serraj government, which seems to spend much of its time in Tunis speaking to the international community, needs to secure an agreement for safe passage of travelers.

When I visited this frontier in 2011, the security problems made it one of the seven priorities for the government; it is disappointing that seven years later the border problems have still not been resolved.  See Chapter 6 of Belfast to Benghazi for the other six areas of strategic concern.

War and Peace Festival in Kent

I am looking forward to joining the distinguished authors during the War and Peace Revival at The Hop Farm, Paddock Wood next week.  It will be another fantastic celebration of military history and vintage re-enactments.  My first talk about the Allied Intervention in Siberia 1918-1920 is on Tuesday 24th July at 1230 in the Authors’ Pavilion.
