    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, AUGUST 28 - The global index of security in Tunisia has returned to 2011 levels despite a continuing terrorist threat, the Tunisian government said Wednesday.

    A report jointly released by the Tunisian ministers of the interior, defence and foreign affairs said 1360 arrests had been made in the fight against terrorism, among them 367 Tunisian jihadists returning from Syria. The report also said 129 investigations had been launched in just the last month.

    The Tunisian executive at the end of a cabinet meeting Wednesday decided to put the border areas of Ras Jedir, Kasserine, Sidi Bouzid, Kef and Jendouba under the joint command of army and security forces. (ANSAmed).
