Tunisia says tunnel found near French ambassador’s residence


An anti-terrorism raid in Tunisia uncovered a tunnel being dug in the vicinity of the French ambassador’s residence from a house frequented by a known extremist, the Interior Ministry said Wednesday.

The ministry’s statement did not indicate the tunnel’s purpose or whether the ambassador’s residence was a target.

It said anti-terrorism officials and prosecutors were investigating. A tip-off alerted security services to suspicious activity at the house in La Marsa, a coastal suburb of the Tunisian capital, Tunis, where the French ambassador also lives, the Interior Ministry said.—AN
