TUNIS, April 29 (Xinhua) -- Tunisia slammed the "violation of its territorial integrity by Libyan forces" in a communique released by the ministry of foreign affairs late on Thursday, state-run news agency TAP reported.

The communique warned against the "consequences of shells falling in a populated area of the country" calling on Libya to respect Tunisia's integrity, and putting an end to these violations.

On Friday morning, the Tunisian radio reported overnight clashes between Libya's government forces and the rebels, when more shells were fired into the Tunisian territory.

The correspondent of the "Radio Mosaique" described panic among the population in Dhiba and Wazen as Grad rockets were fired near both Tunisian towns at Friday morning, meanwhile, in another incident, a Tunisian national guard officer and an army officer were injured on Thursday evening when trying to help Libyan civilians enter Tunisia.

Clashes in western Libya intensified after Libya's government forces re-took control of the Dhiba-Wazen border crossing. The escalation of fighting near the border is causing concern for the safety of civilian populations in the area.
