A fugitive terrorist blew himself up shortly before midnight yesterday at the metro station Cité Intilaka in Tunis after police officers surrounded him, an interior ministry spokesman said.
Interior Ministry spokesman Sofiène Zaâg told private Radio Mosaique that officers surrounded the wanted militant, Aymen Smiri, in the suburban Tunis neighborhood of Intilaka and opened fire.
Zaag said that the ministry had put out a photograph of this unsafe terrorist element and told the people to contact the security or military units if they found any information.
Witnesses said Smiri, reportedly in his early 20s, was wearing women's clothing at the time of the attack.
There were no other injuries or damage reported.
