Ras Ajdir, TUNISIA

Thousands of Bangladeshi workers, walking in a column that stretches over a distance of several miles, make their way to a UNHCR refugee camp some kilometres away from the border. Low cost workers from Bangladesh are increasingly getting desperate. Most of them did not receive a couple of months wages when they left Libya. Also, once at the border nobody takes care of them. In recent days an estimated 70,000 refugees have crossed the Tunisian border fleeing the hostilities in Libya. On 17 February 2011 Libya saw the beginnings of a revolution against the 41 year regime of Col Muammar Gaddafi.
