Tunisia: Protestors in Front of French Embassy in Tunis Claim Release of Georges Abdallah

Tunis — Dozens of Lebanese nationals, nationalist students and delegates of the Tunisian league for tolerance gathered on Saturday in front of the French Embassy in Tunis to claim the release of Lebanese activist Georges Ibrahim Abdallah.

Imprisoned in France for 28 years, Georges Abdallah has been sentenced for complicity in the killing in 1982 in Paris of two diplomats (one American and one Israeli).
