Tunisian police arrests pro-Gaddafi ring south of the country


10:00, August 29, 2011

TUNIS, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- Tunisian police arrested a Libyan agent and his Tunisian accomplices in southern Tunisia, Radio Express FM reported Sunday.

The man who recruited and paid Tunisian nationals an initial amount of 600 dinars (about 450 U.S. dollars) to abduct Libyan rebels and plan attacks on fuel trucks headed for the Libyan capital, was arrested along with two Tunisians, following a tip off, the radio said.

Last week, a Libyan army officer turned himself to Tunisian military authorities, after refusing to bomb an Arab embassy in the capital, a military spokesman reported. The attack had been planned by Gaddafi himself, the officer said.
