373 Egyptians return from Libya through Salloum border crossing

Published 2015-09-01 09:44:26| Amwal Al Ghad English

As many as 373 Egyptians have entered Egypt from Libya via the Salloum border crossing in the Matrouh governorate over the past 24 hours according to a statement by General Hisham Lutfi, assistant to the interior minister. In a press statement, Lutfi announced that of the 373 Egyptians, 310 had originally entered Libya legally while the remaining 63 had entered illegally. He added that 978 people, including 253 Egyptians and 725 Libyans, passed into Libya in the past 24 via the Salloum crossing. Meanwhile, Egypt's border guards foiled the attempts of 172 people to enter Libya illegally on Monday via desert roads in the area. The 172 people are Egyptians bar one Sudanese. They come from various governorates in Egypt including Minya, Sohag, Beheira, Fayoum and Qena. They were referred for prosecution pending further investigation. On Wednesday the governor of Matrouh governorate met with Libya's interior minister Mustafa El-Dabbash to discuss the final proceedings ahead of reopening the Musaid border crossing between the two countries. The border has been closed following the disappearance of Libyan security forces on 15 August. The reason for their disappearance is still unknown. For decades Libya has been a major destination for Egyptian migrant workers due to its once booming oil economy, geographical proximity and open borders. Instability in Libya has prompted tens of thousands of Egyptian workers to return to Egypt, though many have remained. Egypt renewed warnings to its citizens to avoid travelling to Libya in April. The country remains dangerous and Islamic State operatives beheaded 20 Coptic Egyptian migrant workers in February. Libya is a hot spot for would-be migrants seeking to cross the Mediterranean and enter Europe. The International Organization for Migration estimates that between 330,000 and 1.5 million Egyptians we working in Libya before the NATO-backed war that toppled Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 and the subsequent unrest.

German unemployment declined in August in a sign of confidence that Europe’s largest economy will continue growing. Joblessness fell a seasonally-adjusted 7,000 to 2.79 million, the Federal Labor Agency in Nuremberg said on Tuesday. Economists had predicted a drop of 4,000, after unemployment rose in July. The jobless rate remained at 6.4 percent, the lowest level since German reunification. Germany’s economy is poised for “solid” growth, supported by both external and domestic demand, the Bundesbank predicted on Aug. 17. Business confidence has improved in the past two months even as trade risks from China’s economic slowdown mount. “The German labor market is very stable and robust,” said Johannes Gareis, an economist at Natixis SA in Frankfurt. “Amid a global economy weakened by a trailing dynamic in China, domestic consumption is more important than ever, and this is where the labor market acts as a crutch for the economy.” The number of people without work declined by about 3,000 in western Germany and about 3,000 in the eastern part of the country, the data show.
A senior Kuwaiti lawmaker on Sunday described Iran as the "true enemy" of Sunni-ruled Gulf Arab states, in a sign of growing tensions with the Shiite power. "It has become clear to all that Iran is an enemy plotting to swallow up our states and resources and is the true enemy of the region," Hamad al-Harashani, the head of the Kuwaiti parliament's foreign relations committee, said in a statement. It was the strongest Kuwaiti criticism in years of Iran, with which Kuwait has traditionally had better ties than its fellow Gulf Arab states. Harashani singled out an apparent bomb attack Friday in Bahrain as "yet further evidence of Iran's aggression" in the region. The blast killed a policeman and wounded seven people, with Bahraini officials saying explosives used in the attack were similar to material seized by authorities last month which "came from Iran". "Iran is seeking to spread chaos and undermine the ruling regimes" in the region, Harashani said, calling on Gulf states to boost security coordination. Kuwait and Iran were on relatively good terms for years until the Gulf state this month broke up a "terrorist cell" and seized large quantities of weapons and explosives.
