The main suspect in the February killing of Tunisian opposition party leader Chokri Belaid was allegedly captured in Algeria and extradited to Tunisia, Alchourouk reported on Sunday (March 10th).
Information obtained through satellite surveillance led to the apprehension of Kamel Kadkadi, the Tunisian daily said.
The alleged assassin has reportedly been held for the past six days in an anti-terrorism detention centre in the Tunis area of Bab El Gorjani.
An outspoken opponent of Tunisia's Ennahda-led government, Chokri Belaid was the head of the leftist Unified Democratic Patriots Party (PPDU). His February 6th slaying in Tunis triggered widespread protests that ultimately prompted a government change.
