Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia – In a statement to MosaiqueFM, a former highly-ranked official claimed that the town of Sidi Bouzid is currently out of the state’s control. “Sidi Bouzid is sadly out of the Tunisian sovereignty“, said Touhami Abdouli.

Clashes broke between protesters and security forces on the lights of the assassination of a secular figure on the 25th of July. The recent slain of a second political activist in the popular front in the nearby town of Gafsa furthered even more violence.

Mr. Abdouli stated that a council of elders was created to govern the town of Sidi Bouzid in the total absence of law, noting that the town will not rejoin the state until the ouster of the Islamist government led by Ennahdha party.
