'Huge crush' at Libya-Tunisia border

As thousands try to cross the border from protest-hit Libya into Tunisia, the Red Cross has warned that people are being injured as the overwhelmed authorities struggle to cope.

One of the humanitarian organisation's workers, Joe Lowry, described the situation as "very, very serious" and "very, very worrying".

He was speaking to the BBC's Ben Brown, who said there was "absolute chaos" at the border.
