Tunis: Chokri Belaid, leader of the Tunisian opposition Democratic Patriots party, has been shot dead as he was leaving his home.
 

He was transported to a hospital in the suburbs of Tunis on Tuesday, where he died of his wounds, his bother confirmed.

 

"My brother was assassinated. I am desperate and depressed," Abdelmajid Belaid said.

"My brother was assassinated. I am desperate and depressed," Belaid's brother Abdelmajid Belaid told the AFP news agency.

 

It is not known who is responsible for the attack on the politician.

 

On Saturday he accused "mercenaries" hired by the Ennahda party of carrying out an attack on a Democratic Patriots meeting.
