Dangerous to Oppose 'Moderate' Islamist Tunisian Gov't
A video shown at a news conference following an apparent lynching indicated that a senior opposition party official in southern Tunisia was dragged along the ground and beaten to death Thursday by a pro-government mob. The victim, Lofi Nakd, was the local coordinator of the Nida Touns 'Call of Tunisia' party. He was near death when he arrived at the hospital in Tataouine.
