Tunisia foils 6 illegal migration attempts off coasts

Thursday - June 23, 2022 6:51 am , Category : WORLD
Tunis, June 23 (IANS) Tunisia has foiled six illegal migration attempts to cross the Mediterranean to the Italian coast, National Guard Spokesman Houcemeddine Jbabli said.
Tunisia's Maritime Guard thwarted these attempts late Tuesday off the country's northeastern and central-eastern coasts, Jbabli added on Wednesday in a statement.
The Maritime Guard also arrested 144 illegal migrants, including 109 from African countries, the statement said.
More than 2,000 Tunisian illegal migrants have managed to reach the Italian coasts in the first five months of this year, according to the latest figures released by the Tunisian Forum for Economic and Social Rights as quoted by Xinhua news agency report.
Thousands of illegal migrants attempt to cross the Mediterranean annually as Tunisia is one of the main points of access to Europe through irregular channels.
