Security forces and Salafists clash in Tunisia

Tunis, Tunisia - Security forces and Salafists on Friday clashed in Jebel Lahmar, a popular district in Tunis, sources told PANA.

Police used teargas to push back the Salafists who attacked the police using stones to prevent them from arresting one of their neighbours wanted at the court.

Sources from the Justice ministry confirmed the clashes, as security units tried to track down the assailants in the streets where smoke from burning tyres could be seen. 

The sources did not say whether or not the suspect had been arrested and to which jihadist organisation he belongs.
