Germany has concluded a deal with Tunisia to repatriate Tunisians whose asylum bids have failed as part of a plan to reduce the large influx of migrants to the country.

German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said during a visit to Tunis that the two countries have agreed to send home 20 Tunisians in a "pilot project" and that charter flights would return others later. He didn't say how many Tunisians would ultimately be concerned.
