Tunisian Coast Guard and Army units (les unités de la garde maritime et de l’armée nationale) intercepted and rescued 222 people on board a migrant boat that left Libya and was attempting to sail to Italy. The incident occurred on Saturday, 14 May. The migrant boat was intercepted near Djerba and had reportedly made a distress call because it was taking on water. The people on board the boat were reportedly all sub-Saharan Africans and they have been taken to the Tunisian camp at Choucha (Shusha).
