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.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will continue its contacts with the Algerian authorities to inquire about the circumstances of this incident, ensuring that such painful incidents do not happen again,” said a source at the ministry, quoted by the agency.

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.
