The suspected assassin of prominent Tunisian opposition figure Chokri Belaid, whose death almost exactly a year ago triggered a major political crisis, has been killed, the interior minister said Tuesday.

The National Guard killed "seven heavily-armed terrorists. Some of them have been identified ... Kamel Gadhgadhi was found to be among them," Lotfi Ben Jeddou told reporters, referring to Chokri's alleged killer.
