The Tunisian town of Djerba, close to the Libyan border, is rife with intrigue among Libyans who've left their country - some linked to the rebels and some loyal to Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi. Those who side with the rebels say they're playing a cat-and-mouse game with Gadhafi loyalists, sent to spy on them and disrupt their efforts to organize. They say pro-Gadhafi thugs recently attacked an aid office set up to help Libyan refugees.
