Opposition figure and MP Mohamed Brahmi was shot dead by unknown gunmen outside his home near the Tunisian capital on Thursday, state media announced.

“Mohamed Brahmi, general coordinator of the Popular Movement and member of the National Constituent Assembly, was shot dead outside his home in Ariana,” state television and the official TAP news agency reported.

“He was riddled with bullets in front of his wife and children,” Mohsen Nabti, a fellow member of the small leftist movement, said in a tearful account on Tunisian radio.

Watanya television said Brahmi was struck by a hail of 11 bullets fired from point-blank range.

The February 6 assassination of Chokri Belaid, another opposition figure, in front of his home sparked a political crisis in Tunisia. AFP
