US embassy attack: 94 Tunisians to face trial

A prosecutor at Tunis` first instance tribunal decided Thursday to transfer the files of the 94 accused to the military court, according to Shems FM.



Tunis: At least 94 people arrested for their involvement in an attack on the US embassy here in the capital of Tunisia will be tried in a military court, News agencies reported.

A prosecutor at Tunis` first instance tribunal decided Thursday to transfer the files of the 94 accused to the military court, according to Shems FM.

The defendants` lawyers protested the decision, arguing that a military court could not prosecute civilians.

Four people were killed and 48 injured when an angry mob protesting against an anti-Islam film attacked the US embassy compound last week.
