Tunisia: Fifteen Tunisian Migrants Rescued Off Zarzis (Mod)

Tunis/Tunisia — Fifteen Tunisian irregular migrants were rescued on Thursday by the National Marine 75 kilometers east of Zarzis (Medenine governorate), as they were heading towards the Italian coasts on board of a makeshift boat.

Aged between 16 and 32, the migrants embarked from the coasts of Zarzis late Monday night, a National Defence Ministry press release reads.

Transported to the port of Zarzis, the migrants were handed over to the region's National Guard units to take the necessary measures against them.
