As reported by various sources, there was a major security challenge throughout Tunis on the night of Monday, June 11, 2012. I received several emails and SMS regarding gun fire and vandalism taking place near Expat neighborhoods. It seems like there was a coordinated offensive on the part of the salafists in retaliation to a recent controversial art exhibition and this time the police reacted with force.
Neighborhood Awareness (Confirmed by various Security Sources):
- Le Kram( west) (high activity/burning/vandalism)
- Intersection near the Phoenix in Carthage.
- Army units deployed at the Zephyr center.
