Tunisian volunteer gives refugees ‘dignity in death’

In a graveyard for the unknown, one Red Crescent volunteer works to honour the migrants and refugees he says the world has forgotten.

Southern Tunisia is the final resting place for some of the more than 3,000 people who drowned in the Mediterranean sea last year.

Migrants and refugees died on people-smuggling boats as they tried to start a new life in Europe.

Chamseddine Marzoug, a Tunisian Red Crescent volunteer, is giving some the dignity in death he says they were never afforded in life.
