Journalist Arrested in Connection to Ariana Raid Released - Tunisialive


Journalist Arrested in Connection to Ariana Raid Released - Tunisialive: Mahjoubi was arrested by anti-terrorism officers at 2am on Sunday morning, after forensic investigators operating at the house in Ariana found his fingerprints upon a sink there.

Mahjoubi had travelled to Ariana on Wednesday following a clash between security services and a group of suspected militants at a house in Mnihla. “I reached Mnihla around 12.30, with the operation already having ended at 10 O’clock that morning.” Mahjoubi told Tunisia Live, “Crime Scene Investigators had already been on site, and when I arrived there was nobody from the security services present. The house was open to both the public and journalists.

“I took several shots. However, there was a sink thrown in the middle of my view, (visible on much of the footage of the scene) so I removed it and finished my work.”

Unknown to Mahjoub, crime scene investigators later returned to the site and identified his fingerprints upon the sink, which led to his arrest three days later.

“At 2am on Sunday, I woke up during a security raid at my house. I was frightened. There were police officers, National Guards and even a military van outside.
