Tunisian government moves in on armed groups

A soldier dies and seven others are injured as army launches operation to tackle armed groups.

    A Tunisian soldier has been killed by a landmine near the border with Algeria and seven others were injured as the army launched an operation in the area to tackle armed groups.

    The government has been criticised for failing to deal with so-called radicals, but the ruling party still has plenty of supporters.
