    TUNIS - Tunisian authorities denied entrance at the port of Zarzis to the rescue ship Sea Watch of the eponymous German NGO, said Chamseddine Marzoug, an activist and member of the Tunisian Red Crescent.
    Marzoug told local media that the ship is at the mercy of the waves about 20 miles off the coast of Zarzis, a city on Tunisia's southeast coast.
    Two Spanish NGO ships - the Mare Jonio of the NGO Mediterranea and the Proactiva Open Arms of the eponymous NGO - have been docked at the port of Zarzis since last Saturday for a technical stopover, and are currently remaining there due to expected worsening weather.
