Es scheint, der Konflikt zwischen der regierenden islamistischen Ennadha Partei in Tunesien und den Salafiten spitzt sich zu:
Tunisia’s Interior Minister Ali Larayedh used tough language today when addressing recent violence in the Tunisian hinterland from religious hardliners from some Salafist groups in Tunisia.
“Those who think that sovereign institutions such as police barracks can be attacked with impunity should know that in such cases the law authorises the use of live rounds,” the AFP reports Larayedh told reporters.
Recent incidents in Ghardimaou, Jendouba, Sidi Bouzid and Sejnane among other places have seen violent acts of Salafists attacking bars, setting police stations on fire and threatening those who do not practice their version of Islam. (…)
Larayedh is a member of the governing Islamist Ennahda political party. Ennahda Party officials have become increasingly vocal recently about cracking down on religious based violence seen as disturbing public order.
In February the Tunisian Interior Ministry announced the arrest of 12 suspects from an extremist group with alleged ties to Al Qaeda who were stockpiling weapons with the intention of creating an Islamic Emirate in Tunisia.
