Libyan rebels have overrun a post on the Tunisian border in a rare advance against government troops in the west of the country, reports say.
The reported capture of the Wazin crossing follows fighting in the area.
Tunisia’s state-run TAP news agency says 13 Libyan soldiers, including a general, turned themselves over to the Tunisian military at the border.
The rebels control much of eastern Libya. Fighting is continuing in the besieged western city of Misrata.
