As of now, 63 people have been saved from the tragedy. However, the exact number of missing people remains unknown. On Thursday, four bodies were found by Tunisian coast guards. As it stands in the central Mediterranean, Tunisia is a frequent point for illegal immigration to Europe.

Although the government is taking extreme action to address this issue, attempts at illegal immigration from Tunisia to Italy continue to grow in frequency.
