Italian trawler seized by Tunisia

Mazara Del Vallo, August 20 - The Tunisian Navy on Tuesday seized an Italian trawler in the Sicilian Channel, saying it had strayed into Tunisian waters. 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.
