The boat had originally set off towards Europe from the Libyan city of Zuwara. Over 120 migrants were aboard. At least 43 migrants are missing after a boat heading towards Europe capsized near the Tunisian coast, a Tunisian Red Crescent official said Saturday. What do we know so far? Red Crescent official Munji Salim said the boat carrying 127 migrants sank near the southeastern Tunisian city of Zarzis late Friday. So far, 84 migrants have been rescued by authorities, with 43 having disappeared. The rescued migrants were transferred to Zarzis port. “The sheltering centers in southern Tunisia are crowded with migrants,” Salim said. The boat had departed to Europe from the northwestern Libyan port city of Zuwara earlier this week.
