Tunisian opposition politician shot dead in Tunis
Tunis: Tunisian opposition politician Mohamed Brahmi, who belonged to the nationalist and secular Popular Party, was shot dead outside his house in the capital Tunis on Thursday, a member of his party said.
Brahmi was a vocal critic of the Islamist-led government and a member of the Constituent Assembly charged with drawing up the North African country`s new constitution.
"He was shot in front of his house when he was with his disabled daughter," Mohamed Nabki, a member of the same party, told Reuters. "The killers fled on a motorbike."
The February assassination of another secular politician, Chokri Belaid, ignited the worst violence in Tunisia since the 2011 fall of autocratic President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.
