Seven attempts to cross Mediterranean towards Italian coast foiled

A total of 81 illegal immigrants, including three women, were arrested late Monday night by coast guard units off the coast of Nabeul, in northeastern Tunisia, TAP reported Wednesday.

Located in the central Mediterranean, Tunisia is one of the most popular transit points for illegal immigration to Europe.

Although the Tunisian authorities have adopted stringent measures to tackle the problem, attempts to smuggle people from Tunisia to Italy are on the rise.
