(TAP)– Fifty-four undocumented Algerian migrants were rescued from Wednesday to Saturday after their boats sank near La Galite island, Bizerte, said a security source.

These migrants were on board various small fishing boats, trying to irregularly cross the Tunisian maritime borders to the Italian coasts, the same source told TAP.

They were taken to the October 15 youth centre in Bizerte, where they will undergo COVID-19 tests before being repatriated in coordination with the relevant authorities.
