Several fishermen in the Tunisian port city of Zarzis have blocked the Defend Europe vessel, the “C-Star”, from refuelling, claiming that the ship and its mission to watch over migrant rescue NGOs is “racist”.
The fishermen, who belong to the Tunisian Association of Fishermen, blocked the Defend Europe vessel from approaching the port on Sunday. Head of the Association of Fishermen Chamseddine Bourassine said: “It is the least we can do given what is happening out in the Mediterranean,” whilst a port official said: “Us let in racists here? Never,”
Tunisia… No. 1 for ISIS recruitment.
