Italian trawler seized by Tunisia
Diplomatic channels activated in latest20 August, 16:06
The Pindaro, with a crew of three Italians and four Tunisians, was escorted to the North African country's port of Sfax.
A fishing group in this southwestern Sicilian port said they had activated diplomatic channels to get the trawler back.
Tunisia has seized hundreds of vessels from the Mazara del Vallo fleet since the late 1980s, usually handing them back after a few days.
