53 migrants blocked from entering Tunisia


TUNIS: Tunisia’s Defense ministry said Tuesday it had prevented 53 Ivorian and Sudanese citizens from illegally entering the country, a move condemned by NGOs as a violation of rights. On Sunday, two groups — 33 Ivorians and 20 Sudanese — arriving from Libya by land were arrested by military units in the southern border area of Medenine and sent back to Libyan territory, the defence ministry said. The units asked the groups to enter via official border crossings, the ministry said in a statement.
