    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, NOVEMBER 22 - The Tunisian Ministry of Religious Affairs has reported five Salafists it says illegally took over five mosques in the north-eastern Nabeul governorate.

    The move is seen as a signal that the ministry is taking on Salafism, a militant, extremist form of Sunni Islam, analysts said. The five men allegedly proclaimed themselves imams of Ettawfik, Itha, Ibn Abi Kaab, and Errahma mosques as well as the Great Mosque after the 2011 revolution. They are currently under investigation by the attorney general. (ANSAmed).
