Tunisia bans Abu Iyadh radio interview
A Tunisian judge on Monday (February 4th) barred private radio station Mosaique FM from broadcasting an interview with the alleged organiser of the US embassy attack, AFP reported.
The interview "might contain coded messages capable of influencing the investigation and disturbing public order", Judge Jalel Eddine Boukhtif said in a statement read on the air.
Abu Iyadh (real name Saif Allah bin Hussein) leads radical salafist group Ansar al-Sharia. He is wanted on several terrorism-related charges, including "voluntary homicide with premeditation".
Abu Iyadh risks the death penalty if convicted.
