11 smugglers were killed after a Libyan fighter jet bombed a convoy carrying fuel 5 miles from the Tunisian and Algerian borders.
A military source said in a statement on Friday: “The convoy failed to stop and comply with the warning signal given by the aircraft.”
He added that the convoy consisted of six vehicles, carrying a capacity of 30,000 litres of fuel. The vehicles increased their speed to try and avoid the plane in the mountainous region.
The aircraft bombed the convoy immediately while they attempted to flee Libya.
