Tunisia PM orders probe into police negligence claims

World Bulletin / News Desk

Interim Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa has ordered an investigation into alleged police negligence in relation to a Sunday attack that left four people dead, including three policemen, in Tunisia's northwestern Jendouba province.

A Tunisian man on Tuesday told a private local satellite channel that he had tipped police off about a pending attack but that they had disregarded his warning.

Following the attack, the man claimed, he had been summoned and interrogated by police.

The incident prompted Jomaa to order a probe into the man's allegations.

"Jomaa ordered the Interior Ministry to investigate and prepare a report on the matter," Abdel-Salam al-Zobeidi, the prime minister's media adviser, told Anadolu Agency on Friday.

Four people were killed on Sunday in what the Interior Ministry described as a "terrorist" attack in Tunisia's northwestern Jendouba province.
