Tunisian migrants seek return after 'abuse'

Many Tunisians who fled unrest to Europe are opting to return home amid claims of abuse.

    Thousands of Tunisians fled to neighbouring Italy shortly after a revolution in their country in January.

    Having undergone their risky journeys, many of the migrants wished to move on to other European countries but were denied entry at the border.

    Al Jazeera's Casey Kauffman reports from Genoa in Italy that some migrants are opting to return home after saying they are suffering mistreatment from authorities and being denied basic rights.
