On the night of May 16 to 17, 2024, a boat loaded with several dozen illegal migrants capsized off the Tunisian coast.

Results: Several deaths including Beninese.

Faced with this tragedy, the Government of Benin, very sensitive, was quick to react.

In a press release signed this Saturday, May 18, 2024, the Beninese Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that “This shipwreck caused dozens of losses of human lives which are currently being evaluated, through sustained research to find and identify the bodies of the victims”, informs the ministry in a press release dated Saturday May 18, 2024.

The press release above all informs that some of the Beninese migrants in Tunisia will be repatriated to the country: “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is closely monitoring developments in the situation, in coordination with the Tunisian authorities, its partners and a consular mission present in Tunis to prepare the voluntary return of 165 Beninese migrants”.

In presenting its sincere condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims of this tragedy, the Beninese Government did not fail to recall “the dangers of irregular migration”.
