Tunisian security forces deport African migrants to no man’s land on Libyan border

Tunisian security forces in Sfax have rounded up hundreds of people from sub-Saharan Africa, including children, and dropped them in a no man’s land between the Tunisian and Libyan border, where they remain trapped with neither food nor water. These forced deportations carried out by the security services come against a backdrop of heightened anti-migrant rhetoric and violence that broke out in Sfax the night of July 3. Our team spoke to a man from the Ivory Coast who said that some people had died and more than 300 people are trapped at the border in terrible conditions.
