Published: May 31, 2013

TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — Tunisian police arrested six new militants this week in their battle against al-Qaida-linked extremists, including one man believed to be connected to the assassination of a leftist politician in February, the Interior Ministry announced Friday.

The arrests bring to 45 the number of militants detained on the mountainous border with Algeria since December, spokesman Mohammed Ali Aroui told reporters. Tunisia has been trying to push back a feared surge of al-Qaida-linked militants who are believed to have fled the French operation to root out extremists in northern Mali.
