- A group of 131 lawyers and 14 citizens are prosecuting Nessma TV for broadcasting a film considered offensive to Islam. After the channel aired “Persepolis,” an award-winning French-Iranian film about a girl’s religious journey and struggle, violent protests erupted in Tunis, and police used tear gas to disperse demonstrators. The group of lawyers says that they decided to bring their suit against Nessma TV, its manager Nabil Karwi, and its owner Tarak Ben Ammar before the protests occurred.
