Algeria’s Ambassador to Tunisia, Abdelkader Hadjr, was summoned, yesterday, Friday, February 1, to the headquarters of the Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, reported Tunisian official agency TAP.
A Tunisian man was killed, on Thursday, by Algerian forces while fishing in Algeria’s territorial waters, Tunisia’s national guard said on Thursday.
The incident took place off the coast of Tabarka, a town in north-east Tunisia close to the border with Algeria, at around 10:30 (0930 GMT).
“A Tunisian fisherman was killed by shots from Algerian security while he was fishing in the territorial waters of Algeria,” said national guard spokesperson Houssameddine al-Jabali.
“They received a warning from Algerian security, before the gunshots,” Jabali added.
The fisherman was brought to shore in Tunisia and died en route to hospital.
