    (ANSAmed) - ROME, SEPTEMBER 9 - For years, Tunisian fishermen have been coming across vessels in difficulty and have saved the lives of many migrants by bringing them onto their boats. To increase their ability to conduct rescue efforts at sea, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) organized a six-day training course for 116 fishermen in the Tunisian city of Zarzis. The course, MSF said, instructed attendees in rescue steps, how to communicate with the people onboard and call for help from the Sea Rescue Coordination Center. MSF is conducting training courses also for the Tunisian and Libyan Red Crescent as well as the Tunisian civil defence and National Guard on corpse recovery and how to receive those rescued at sea and brought to the coast.
