Tunisian President Kais Said received a suspicious envelope with unknown contents. This was revealed by Mohsen al-Dali, head of the information and communications department and deputy prosecutor of the country, in a conversation with Mosaique FM.
According to him, a package arrived at the presidential palace in Carthage without any documents inside, but with a suspicious substance. Ad-Dali believes there is no indication that it was poison. However, he noted that the envelope was handed over to competent experts who will tell exactly what kind of substance it is. In addition, Tunisia plans to begin a search for the sender.
The envelope was opened by a palace employee. The president himself is feeling well.
There are mass protests in the country, demonstrators demand the resignation of the government and complain about the low standard of living. Demonstrations have been accompanied by riots in a number of cities, and security forces have used tear gas to disperse protesters. The demonstrations in Tunisia coincided with the 10th anniversary of the “Jasmine Revolution,” which triggered the Arab Spring.
