Tunisia seeks death penalty over anti-US attacks

Defense lawyers say Tunisian authorities are seeking the death penalty against several suspects who have been detained over attacks on the US Embassy and the neighboring American school last month.


Anouar Ouled Ali and Mondher Charni said Thursday that several of the 87 people now held in custody risk capital punishment on charges including attacks against state security. The September 14 violence came amid roiling protests across the Muslim world over a private US-produced film that mocked the Prophet Muhammad. (AP)
