Interior Ministry reveals identity of attacker of two police officers

The Interior Ministry has revealed the identity of the perpetrator of Wednesday’s attack on two traffic police officers on Wednesday in Bardo.

He is the so-called Zied Ben Salem Gharbi born in 1992.

In a post published on its Facebook page, the department said the attacker stabbed Commander Riadh Barrouta around the neck and injured Captain Mohamed Aidi at the front. The latter’s life is not in danger.

Security forces present on the scene arrested the assailant while he was attempting to attack a third policeman. They avoided the use of ammunition in order to preserve the safety of citizens during the rush hour, according to the same source.

In co-ordination with the prosecutor’s office at the judicial counter-terrorism unit, the terrorist and organised crime research unit ordered the perpetrator to be held in police custody.
