Tunisian authorities have not yet formally notified Italian prosecutors, who arrested 22-year-old Abdelmajid Touil on an international warrant earlier this week, what he was suspected of doing or when. "Touil entered Tunisia by plane from Morocco on Feb. 2 before escaping stealthily to Libya" where he boarded a migrant boat to Italy, a senior official in the Interior Ministry told Reuters.
