UNHCR established its presence in Tunisia's southern village of Ras Djir on February 24, 2011, to respond to the mass influx of people crossing into Tunisia to escape the violence in Libya. According to the Tunisian authorities, more than 200,000 people have fled Libya to Tunisia since 20 February with more than 150,000 being third-country nationals. While most of the arrivals have been from Egypt, more than twenty-five others nationalities have been seen at the border, including a large number of Bangladeshis, Egyptians, Somalis and Sudanese. The majority of arrivals are migrant workers who were employed in Libya before the violence split the country. As of April 3, the total population at Shousha camp is approximately 8,700 with the majority of the residents originating from Chad, Sudan and Somalia. In comparison to the beginning of the crisis where more than ten thousand persons were crossing into Tunisia per day, currently, a daily average of 1,500-2,500 individuals continue to cross the border from Libya, according to UNHCR.

  129. 131. GENEVA, April 8 (Reuters) - More desperate people are likely to flee Libya in rickety, overcrowded boats and a better maritime rescue system is urgently needed to avoid further massive loss of life, the U.N. refugee agency said on Friday. The UNHCR called on other European Union member states to help Italy and Malta, which have borne the brunt of the exodus so far and are likely to see more migrants arriving soon. More than 220 Somali, Eritrean and Ivorian refugees drowned early on Wednesday when their overloaded boat sank off the coast of Sicily in what the agency called the "worst such incident in the Mediterranean in recent years". "It is hard to comprehend that at a time when tens of thousands are fleeing the Libyan conflict and pouring across the land borders into Tunisia and Egypt where they enjoy safety and receive shelter and aid, the protection of people fleeing via Libya's maritime border does not appear to have the same priority," Assistant High Commissioner for Protection Erika Feller said in a statement. A boat carrying 171 African refugees fleeing Libya arrived in Malta today, taking to over 1,000 the total number of refugees who have arrived there in the past few days. Maltese coast guards had initially wanted to take the migrants to the Italian island of Lampedusa but were refused entry, Italy's coast guard said. The Maltese government has hit back strongly at Italy’s refusal to allow entry into Lampedusa of an AFM patrol boat laden with 170 migrants who had just been rescued from a drifting boat, just miles off the Italian island. More than 450,000 people have fled Libya, mainly crossing into Tunisia and Egypt, but also going to Niger, Algeria, Chad, Sudan, Italy and Malta, according to the UNHCR. Many more are trapped by the fast-moving conflict, it said. "UNHCR is particularly concerned about refugees and asylum seekers in Misrata and other Libyan towns. As the situation in Libya deteriorates, many may have to consider flight by sea as their only option." The longstanding tradition of saving lives at sea may be jeopardised if states start arguing over who should rescue them, the agency said. "That is why we urgently need a ... better functioning search and rescue mechanism," Fuller said. "Any overcrowded boat leaving Libya these days should be considered to be in distress." EU members can offer Italy and Malta technical and financial support and the use of the bloc's temporary protection directive which aims to harmonise temporary refuge for displaced people in cases of mass influx, according to the UNHCR. Italy and France agreed on Friday to carry out joint patrols of Tunisia's coast to stem a growing wave of migrants heading to Europe to flee turmoil in North Africa, Italian Interior Minister Roberto Maroni said.
