Germany to resettle 201 refugees from Tunisia’s Shousha transit camp

On Monday 3 September, 195 refugees departed from Shousha transit camp - located seven kilometers from the Tunisa-Libya border - to Germany to start a new life. The refugees had initially fled to to Libya, before being uprooted again last year because of the civil war in Libya.  The largest number of refugees originate from Sudan (Darfur), Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia. Most are single males between the age of 18 and 35, although there are also 20 families with children and 3 unaccompanied minors.
