Tunis, 5 Oct. (AKI) - Tunisian police have arrested three armed Libyan citizens in the south of the country who have allegedly crossed the border from Libya, according to local media.

The Libyans were travelling in a jeep in the Tunisian province of Tataouine when they were arrested, according to news web site Atouf.

At the time of their arrest they claimed to have inadvertently entered Tunisian territory after taking a wrong turning, but police questioned the story when they found the suspects in possession of various types of weapons, the report said.

Investigators believe the Libyans may be connected to Al-Qaeda, whose members since the fall of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have frequently crossed the borders separating Tunisia, Libya and Algeria.
