Tunisian security forces storm Al Jazeera offices, tell journalists to leave
At least 10 heavily armed police officers entered the office on Monday and asked all journalists to leave, according to Al Jazeera.
The security forces told journalists they were carrying out instructions from the country's judiciary, the media organisation reported.
"They didn’t have a judiciary [notice] but asked the staff to leave, preventing them from taking their personal belongings,” wrote Al Jazeera English Senior international correspondent Hoda Abdel-Hamid on Twitter.
Abdel-Hamid also said security forces were dressed in plain clothes at the time of the raid. ■
