Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Chiasso.Three young men from Tunisia, who arrived from Italy at the begining of april, have asked for political asylums in Switzerland. The three men are economic migrants who fled Tunisia after the recent political turbulence. They are now waiting for the answers from the swiss government. They are standing in the railway station and posing under the statue " Italia e Svitzzera" ( created in 1932 by the artist Margherita Osswald Toppi). Swiss authorities are watching and closely monitoring the incoming Tunisians who have recently poured into Italy and who make their way to Switzerland. 08.04.11 © 2011 Didier Ruef
