Tunisia: Former Prime Minister Jebali arrested

Tunisian police today arrested former Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali, a former senior member of the Islamist Ennahda party, according to a post on his Facebook page.

According to the relevant post, the police arrested Jebali in the city of Susa because he did not have an identity card with him (as they said), while they confiscated the mobile phones of him and his wife.

The Tunisian Interior Ministry, contacted by Reuters, declined to comment on the news of Jebali’s arrest.

Hamadi Jebali, 73, was Tunisia’s prime minister from December 2011 until February 2013.
