Tunisia beefs up security at desert oil sites
Tunisia is reinforcing the security around its oil and gas facilities in this North African country's southern deserts following an attack in Algeria, the state news agency reported.


Special units will protect the installations in the southern Sahara region, which is 150 miles (240 kilometers) north of Algeria's Ain Amenas gas plant, attacked two weeks ago by al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists, the agency quoted security officials as saying. (AP)
