The Associated Press reports that long lines have formed at the Dhuheiba border crossing between Tunisia and Libya, with families in pickup trucks laden with supplies returning home to their villages and towns in Libya's west.

Many say they are headed to Nalut, a town that was regularly shelled by pro-Gaddafi troops until rebels pushed them out of the area last week.

Lutfi ben Hamed, an official with the UN refugee agency says that 2,000 people entered Libya on Friday, which is about double the average daily number.

On Saturday, the AP reports that more than 100 cars of people queued up on the Tunisian side of the border, looking to get into Libya.
