Young Tunisians make up the largest number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea. Euronews Correspondent Anelise Borges visited the coastal town of Zarzis in southern Tunisia to find out why so many Tunisian youths continue to risk everything for the chance of a better life outside the country.
The boat packed with some 180 migrants sank on Sunday off Tunisia’s coast. The death toll has risen to at least 68, with dozens still missing. Euronews reporter Anelise Borges is in the Italian port town of Catania in Sicily where she is about to join a Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) rescue mission.
