Migrants from sub-Saharan Africa living in Tunisia are staying indoors through fear of reprisals, while some have been forcibly evicted from their accommodation by landlords. Sub-Saharan students who are studying legally in the North African country meanwhile say they are “living in fear” and have been told by student organisations to “stay in their homes” to avoid being attacked. This climate of fear comes after comments made by Tunisian president Kaïs Saïed on Tuesday February 21st during a meeting to discuss the issue of undocumented sub-Saharan migrants in the country.
Since January 7, 2023 our colleague and friend Mortaza Behboudi has been imprisoned in Afghanistan, in the Taliban prisons.
We do not forget him and call for his release.
