An Italian train carrying Tunisian immigrants was halted at the border of France Sunday due to the on going battle over North African migrants fleeing political unrest to Europe, BBC reported.
France claimed there were hundreds of activists on the train planning a demonstration in France, the Star Tribune reported. Italy is said to have angered France by giving out temporary resident permits to thousands of Tunisian migrants, which allows them to travel freely in many European countries.
There is said to have been a demonstration planned in which some 300 protestors were going to ride a train in support of Tunisian immigrants, according to BBC's Hugh Schofield.
