Three Tunisians have been arrested on suspicion of stabbing a sub-Saharan migrant to death.

The victim – a man from Benin – died after he and 18 other migrants were attacked at a house in Tunisia’s second city, Sfax.

Five others were injured. The country has seen a big rise in racially motivated assaults on sub-Saharan migrants since an incendiary speech in February by President Kais Saied.

He blamed them for a wave of violence and crime.

Tunisia has now overtaken Libya as the major embarkation point for African migrants trying to reach Europe.
