Illegal immigration attempt thwarted in Chebba

Mahdia Coast Guards, on Thursday, intercepted a boat with 18 illegal immigrants onboard off Chebba.

Three Tunisians from Jebeniana (Sfax governorate) and 15 other African nationals including 10 women have been arrested.

According to a security source, they have admitted they were attempting to illegally cross to the Italian coasts.

A boat, quantities of fuels and a sum of money in foreign currency were seized during this operation, the same source indicated.

Mahdia Coast Guards had thwarted last week an illegal immigration attempt conducted by 33 individuals from Sfax.
