Tunisia's Ennahda Calls For Conference On Terrorism

18.03.2015 19:33

Tunisia's Islamist Ennahda movement on Wednesday called for holding a major conference with the aim of drawing up a national strategy for fighting terrorism.

Tunisia's Islamist Ennahda movement on Wednesday called for holding a major conference with the aim of drawing up a national strategy for fighting terrorism.



The movement also called for issuing new anti-terrorism legislation and other laws aimed at protecting civilians in Tunisia.



Ennahda's appeal came only hours after a terrorist attack on a Tunis museum left 21 people, including 17 tourists, dead.



In a statement, the movement denounced the attack, describing it as a "terrorist crime."



"This crime aims to destabilize Tunisia, spread fear and harm the national economy," Ennahda said.



The attack, it added, had targeted Tunisia's tourism sector, noting that hundreds of thousands of Tunisians earned their living through tourism.



"This crime won't break the Tunisian people," the movement asserted.



Wednesday's attack – the first to target Tunisia's tourism sector since 2002 – has yet to be claimed by any group.
