So reports the Tunisia Monitoring Group:
...The two activists arrived from Europe in the port of La Goulette. Upon arrival, they were held by customs for six hours, during which time Bensedrine was violently attacked, leaving bruises on her body. The customs agents confiscated cell phones, documents and computer hard discs from both Bensedrine and Mestiri - copying files and passwords from their laptops.
This assault follows a recent attack on Samia Abbou and Fatma Ksila, two women activists who were assaulted by police in Sousse on 18 February.
"I find it hard to believe that just days before International Women's Day, the government of Tunisia would sanction such a vicious attack on a woman." says IFEX-TMG Chair Rohan Jayasekera, of Index on Censorship.
