Tu­nisia bor­der clashes Louis baf­fled by BGT Shock over armed raids

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - COMMENT -

A BATTLE be­tween Libyan troops and rebels has spilled over the west­ern bor­der into Tu­nisia.

The move sparked a sharp re­buke of Muam­mar Gaddafi’s regime from the neigh­bour­ing gov­ern­ment.

Clashes along the Tu­nisian bor­der have es­ca­lated, pos­ing a new chal­lenge for Gaddafi within the west­ern half of the coun­try where he must con­sol­i­date his con­trol to cling to power.

Mean­while, at least two Nato air strikes hit a gov­ern­ment com­plex in the cap­i­tal Tripoli to­day, dam­ag­ing of­fices of par­lia­men­tary staff and a build­ing of­fi­cials said housed a com­mis­sion for chil­dren and women. LOUIS Walsh was due to step in to take the place of David Has­sel­hoff as guest judge in Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent tonight. And dur­ing film­ing he was left a lit­tle con­fused by some of the acts. The Ir­ish­man, pic­tured, was baf­fled by the va­ri­ety of acts, in­clud­ing a dance group dressed like Ed­ward Scis­sorhands, an­other dance act based on Star Wars and Michael Jack­son, a fin­ger-snap­ping act and Olivia, 7 – who was to read a poem with a 6ft snake wrapped around her neck. A ROB­BER stole more than £4,500 af­ter he walked into a bank and threat­ened staff with a knife.

The man, who was wear­ing a grey hooded top, had to force the doors of the bank open to make his es­cape on foot. No one was in­jured in the rob­bery at the Bank of Scot­land in Tron­gate, Glas­gow, at around 4.30pm yes­ter­day.

Else­where in the city, armed rob­bers stole around £500 from an off li­cence in Easter­house.

Two men, one armed with a knife and one armed with what ap­peared to be a gun, en­tered the G101 store in Lochdochart Road at around 8.40pm and threat­ened staff. No shots were fired and no one was in­jured, though staff were left badly shaken.
