Attacks on African migrants in Tunisia – BBC News

Migrants in Tunisia have been attacked after the fatal stabbing of a 41-year-old local man during an altercation with several migrants from sub-Saharan Africa.

Videos of the attack have been widely shared. One shows a masked perpetrator screaming that “black Africans are a threat to us and our women” and then inciting people to assault the migrants.

The Tunisian authorities have responded by forcibly removing more than 100 migrants from the city of Sfax and driving them to the Tunisian-Libyan border.

A further 1,000 have since been removed from the city and taken to both the Libyan and Algerian borders.
