TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — A Tunisian military operation has killed nine suspected terrorists and captured four, all of whom are believed to have been behind an ambush that left two police officers dead on Thursday.
The ambush in northwestern Tunisia set off demonstrations by police officers who want the government to take a tougher stance against terrorism, including reinstating powers they had under former dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
Interior Ministry spokesman Mohamed Ali Aroui said Saturday that explosives and rifles were seized during the three-day military operation, which also found plans for terrorist attacks and assassinations.
Aroui said the people killed and captured belong to Ansar al-Sharia, which Tunisia recently classified as a terrorist organization for its alleged involvement in the assassination of two opposition politicians earlier this year.
