Tunisia presidency slams U.S. criticism over trial

AFP, Tunisia

The Tunisian presidency on Tuesday criticized as “unacceptable” Washington’s condemnation of lenient sentences given last week to 20 assailants of the U.S. embassy in Tunis, contradicting earlier comments by the justice minister.

“The [U.S.] comments are out of place, both from the political point of view and from the point of view of our relations with the United States,” presidency spokesman Adnene Manser told private radio station Kalima.
