Omar bin Ali, a member of the Trade Union, was present at the demonstration site and told Al Jazeera that the Islamists are responsible. "This is what they have been calling for in mosques," he said.

"Tunisia is a friend of all. It is hard to think of anyone from abroad to do this to us," added Omar bin Ali, ruling out the possibility of external factors in the killing.

Belaid had been critical of Tunisia's leadership, especially the Islamist party Ennahda that dominates the government.
