Tunisia: Salafites threaten to kill teachers without veil

Ultimatum, if they don't obey we will lynch them

04 December, 10:43

    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, DECEMBER 4 - A group of Salafites has issued death threats against teachers at an elementary school in Djerba, Tunisia, if they will not start wearing the Islamic veil within a week.

    In a letter with the logo of Ansar al Sharia, a Salafite Islamic group suspected of terror activities and banned by the Tunisian government, the teachers are threatened by an organization which calls itself a repression cell in the region.

    The death threat was denounced by the school director who took the letter to the police.

    Primary schools have long been targeted by Islamists as part of what appears like a general plan to set up, without authorization, dozens of Koranic schools with programmes which are completely different from official ones. (ANSAmed)
