Tunisia rejects accusations of mistreatment of Black refugees

Tunisia’s president has rejected criticism of his government’s treatment of Black African refugees after hundreds were rounded up by authorities and left on the border with Libya.
President Kais Saied said on Sunday the refugees were receiving humane treatment stemming from what he called “our values”.
Refugees, however, say they have been left to tackle the desert heat with little food or water.
Tunisia, which is a major migration route to Europe, has come under criticism from rights groups after authorities rounded up refugees and asylum seekers and expelled them to a remote buffer zone at Tunisia’s border with Libya.
