Man behind National guardsman’s death in Kairouan arrested

The driver of the contraband vehicle that had killed a National guardsman in Kairouan was arrested Saturday night in the Kabbara area of the Nasrallah delegation,” said Colonel Major Khelifa Chibani.

The suspect aged 32 and native of Sidi Ali Ben Aoun (Sidi Bouzid) was arrested after a police ambush, Chibani told TAP.

Legal proceedings have been initiated against him for intentional homicide, Chibani said.

A National guardsman was killed on Saturday by a contraband truck in the Kabbara area of the Nasrallah delegation in Kairouan Governorate.

A convoy of three contraband vehicles without registration plates did not comply with summons to stop by the joint patrol deployed in the region.

The convoy drove straight on the patrol before one of the vehicles slammed into the national guardsman.

The security patrol rushed in pursuit of the three vehicles that bypassed all the security barriers.
