Tunisia is needing to once again prolong its state emergency, which began the previous year during political violence.


TUNIS, TUNISIA — Tunisia’s President Beji Caid el Sebsi  has extended the state of emergency in the country for another three months, a decision made following the stabbing of a police commander earlier this month by a suspected Islamic extremist, near the nation’s Parliament in Tunis.

The state of emergency — which gives more power to police, especially to ban strikes and gatherings — has been in place and repeatedly extended since 2015, itself a year of significant extremist attacks, including the Bardo Museum killing of 22 people, the Sousee beach hotel killing of 38 people, and the attack of a bus carrying presidential guards in Tunis leaving another 12 dead.
