Libya Deports Tunisians Detained in Illegal Migration Centres

The Tunisian Embassy in Tripoli has announced its readiness to deport 76 Tunisian youths detained at several illegal migration centres in Tripoli.

According to a statement issued by the Embassy, the deportation is the final batch of Tunisian citizens who were arrested by Libyan security forces.

The 76 deportees arrived in Tunisia on Tuesday evening and were deported through the Ras Ajdir border crossing. The UN had secured their transfer to the port, in cooperation with the relevant Tunisian and Libyan authorities.

On Monday, 686 migrants disembarked on the Italian island of Lampedusa on a 15-meter fishing boat after departing from Libya according to Italy’s Il Messaggero newspaper.
