Refugees protest in Tunisia demanding evacuation

Dozens of refugees have protested in Tunisia – complaining about their treatment and demanding to be evacuated.

The migrants – mostly from Sudan and sub-Saharan countries – held a sit-in in front of UN offices in the southern port of Zarzis.

Some held up banners reading “stop the violence against us.”

The Tunisian coastguard intercepted nearly 20,000 migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean to Europe during the first three-quarters of last year.
