Tunisian Interior Minister Lotfi Ben Jeddo Tunisian Interior Minister Lotfi Ben Jeddo announced Tuesday the formation of “crisis cells to combat terrorist activities” that threaten the country’s security, in addition to a committee that studies the “cyber crimes.”

“We have launched the creation of crisis cells to monitor terrorist activities on the border (with Libya and Algeria) and in the interior, faced with the rise of the radical Salafist movement and the existence of recruitment networks,” the Minister told parliament.
“The High Security Council will hold weekly to follow up those issues,” Ben Jeddo revealed, stating that a new department of the Judicial Police will be formed to deal with cyber crimes.
