Two Nigerian female migrants, bound for Europe were rescued in a shipwreck off the coast of Tunisia. 


However, 17 other Africans drowned as they tried to cross the Mediterranean from Libya to Italy, the Tunisian Red Crescent said on Thursday.


The two Nigerians, who are not yet identified, were rescued in waters off the southern town of Zarzis.


The ship started on Sunday from Zawyia in Libya with 19 migrants on board.


Recall that last month, at least 40 migrants drowned off Tunisia’s port of Sfax south of Tunis.
