Syrian refugees in local mosques and cafes

A number of Syrian refugees have arrived in the Tunisian town of le Kef, some 200 km from the capital, fleeing the violence in their home country, the official TAP press agency reported on Tuesday.

The presence of Syrian refugees in local mosques and cafes where they have been seen asking for financial assistance, has been notably increased over the past few days.

Most of the Syrian refugees crossed the border from Algeria preferring to settle in Tunisia where life is cheaper and where the security situation is more stable, TAP said.
