Six migrants found dead in Tunisia desert

The bodies of two women and four children are reported to have been found in the desert in south-western Tunisia.

They are understood to have been migrants from Niger, who apparently died of thirst.

A sole survivor of the group had left to try to find water, but got lost.

The migrants had crossed into Tunisia from Algeria – walking in the heat wave that’s currently gripping North Africa.

Tunisia is a point of departure for many people trying to reach Europe.
