Dear Friends and Colleagues:
After a valuable trip late last week to Tunisia and Egypt with USAID's Nancy Lindborg, I wanted to share with you a brief perspective on the humanitarian challenges - and in some cases, life and death challenges - faced by those in the region due to the conflict in Libya.
In Tunisia, Nancy and I visited the border village of Ras Djir.

WASHINGTON, March 9, 2011 - Two U.S. C-130s will transport Egyptian refugees from Tunisia to Cairo today, Defense Department officials said.
"The aircraft should be on the ground in Djerba now," said Marine Corps Col. Dave Lapan, referring to the Tunisian island where crews are picking up the refugees. "The plan is for them to transport 150 Egyptians who have fled the fighting in Libya back home."
These will be the ninth and 10th flights taking Egyptians to their home country.
