Atleast 4 dead, 51 missing after migrant ship sinks off Tunisian coast



Following the sinking of a migrant ship off the Tunisian coast, four individuals have been confirmed deceased, while 51 others remain unaccounted for.

A tragic incident occurred off the coast of Tunisia's Kerkennah island, where a migrant ship carrying individuals from sub-Saharan Africa sank, resulting in the loss of four lives, and leaving 51 others missing. 

The Tunisian coast guard has been dealing with a significant increase in migrant fatalities, having recovered 901 bodies from drowning incidents between January 1 and July 20. 

This has led to Tunisia becoming the primary departure point for people seeking refuge from Africa and the Middle East, replacing Libya in the region.
