Tunisian land border with Libya closed: minister

TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia’s land border with Libya has been closed due to the coronavirus, Transport Minister Anouar Maarouf said on Monday.

Tunisia, which has confirmed 20 cases of the coronavirus, has imposed restrictions on flights with some European countries and stopped sea travel.

Libya, where power is split between rival administrations in Tripoli and Benghazi, has not yet confirmed any cases of the coronavirus, but has stopped most commercial air and sea travel.
