After the Berlin Christmas market attack, Tunisia is once again in the spotlight – for a terrible reason.
The perpetrator, Anis Amri, grew up in a small town near Kairouan, 60 miles south of Tunis. His nephew has been the focus of attention as well. Just days ago, German police arrested yet another Tunisian. And recently, the Tunisian authorities admitted that roughly 800 compatriots had returned to the country from Syria and Iraq.
But in Tunis, the news doesn’t overly darken the day. Walk up the hill to the beautiful village of Sidi Bou Said under a clear blue sky and it is magical.
