Illegal Tunisian Migrants Deported from Libya


The Tunisian Consulate in Libya announced that it had returned nineteen Tunisian nationals to Tunisia. They were arrested in recent days by the security forces as part of a crackdown on illegal migration.

The consulate said that it has completed all procedures related to their release, adding that the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) secured their return through the Ras Jedir border crossing.

Last Monday, a Tunisian civil aviation delegation visited Benghazi’s Benina International Airport. The delegation was received by government officials from the airport and the Airports Authority.

They discussed the procedures for the resumption of flights between Benghazi and Tunis. The delegation undertook a field tour of the airport to check the safety and security measures in place, as well as their compliance with internationally approved standards.
