  1. Tunisian PM Fires Six Police Chiefs

    Prime Minister Habib Essid dismissed six police chiefs today following last week’s deadly terrorist attack in Tunis, which killed 20 foreign tourists and three Tunisians. The decision was reportedly prompted by Essid’s visit last night to the site of the attack, where he found “several deficiencies.” President Beji Caid Essebsi warned yesterday that one terrorist remains on the run and vowed that “he won’t get far.” Both leaders are hoping to shore up Tunisia’s fledgling democracy and save its lucrative tourism industry.
