Tunisia: 7 soldiers of allah meet virgins….

Tunisian police have killed seven “fighters”, including a senior commander wanted for the assassination of two opposition leaders, in a daylong standoff in Tunis, the interior ministry has said. (al Jizz)

The raid was one of the deadliest since Tunisian forces cracked down on Ansar al-Sharia, whose leader declares allegiance to al-Qaeda, and which the US lists as a foreign terrorist group.

Among those killed was Kamel Ghadghadi, a senior member of Ansar al-Sharia, wanted for killing seven soldiers, and a suspect in assassinating opposition leaders Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi.
