Tunisian navy rescues around 100 migrants from sinking boat

Tunisia’s Navy has rescued around 100 migrants from a sinking boat off its southeast coast late on Monday.

The rescue happened hours after eight migrants, who were being smuggled to Europe, drowned in the same stretch of water when another boat carrying migrants collided with a Tunisian navy vessel.

The Tunisian Navy has recently launched joint operations with Italy to stem migrant flows and carry out search and rescue operations in the area.
