A Tunisian fishing boat was intercepted on Wednesday in the Libyan territorial waters and escorted by the Coast Guard to the port of Al-Zawiya in western Libya.

7 fishermen were on board the boat "Mohammed Yasin" which was intercepted while fishing illegally off the coast of Zuwara.

The fishermen were later released after paying a fine and signing an undertaking not to penetrate the Libyan waters again.
