Why is Tunisia expelling Black refugees? ( Podcast )
In early July, Tunisian authorities forcibly expelled hundreds of Black migrants and refugees from Sfax, Tunisia’s second-largest city. Al Jazeera found many of them days later without food or water, wandering through the desert ‘no man’s land’ on the border between Tunisia and Libya. Earlier this year, President Kais Sayed accused this vulnerable population of criminal behavior and warned of a conspiracy to replace Tunisian citizens. So what’s being done to help these people, or is it getting worse?
