Tragedy Strikes as Sudanese Migrants Perish in Mediterranean Crossing

At least 13 Sudanese migrants died and 27 others are believed missing after their small metal boat sank off the Tunisian coast as they attempted to cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe.

Two individuals were saved from the overturned boat by the Tunisian coast guard, but others are still missing. The group set out from the shore of neighbouring Sfax, which serves as a popular launching pad for unauthorised boat trips across the Mediterranean Sea to Italy.

The boat sank soon after setting to sea. Migration attempts have increased recently from Tunisia, with migration activists slamming the alarm about mass expulsions and arbitrary arrests of migrants.

Witness accounts indicate the situation has become particularly dire around Tunisia’s borders with Libya and Algeria, as well as around Sfax, the country’s second most populous city.
