86 Salafists have been arrested in Tunisia

Police in Tunisia have arrested 86 Salafists for committing sabotage and arson. The violence reflects the deep divides in the country over the role of religion in society, the sources say.

Tunisian police detained 86 people in Tunis on Tuesday in a clampdown on Salafi Islamists who rioted overnight in protest to an art exhibition. The Salafis claimed that the art was offensive to Islam. It was not known whether there had been any injuries in the confrontation.
