Two alleged Libyan terrorists were arrested Wednesday in southern Tunisia, the official press agency TAP reported.

The two, who entered Tunisia illegally, admitted that they belonged to a terrorist movement after being arrested Wednesday afternoon in the town of Tataouine, TAP said.

They said they aimed at going to Libya through Tunisia.

Three people, including an army officer and two assailants, were killed Wednesday morning in clashes between Tunisian army units and assailants in Rouhia, near the Algerian border in northern Tunisia, TAP reported.
