Tunisia Islamist Crackdown

Tunisia Islamist Crackdown

FILE – In this Friday, March 2, 2012, file photo, Salafists hold posters showing Osama bin Laden during a demonstration near the U.S. embassy in Tunis, Tunisia. Mosques are being closed down, local organizations banned and at least 1,000 have been arrested as Tunisia carries out a wide-ranging crackdown against those suspected of sympathizing with radical Islamists. While still one of the only democracies to emerge from the Arab Spring uprisings, Tunisia’s battle against terrorism is raising fears that it might be returning to its bad old days of political repression.
