TUNIS

At least 11 migrants were killed when their boat sank off Tunisia’s southern coast and the coast guard, the interior ministry said on Sunday, rescued 67 others.

The rescue operation was ongoing, the ministry said in a statement. The migrants were of Tunisian and other nationalities. Unemployed Tunisians and Africans often try to depart in makeshift boats from Tunisia to Sicily in Italy.
