ANSA reported, via Religion of Peace:

A statue commemorating Tunisia’s slain opposition politician Chokri Belaid was destroyed by unidentified vandals on Sunday night just a few hours after being placed in the site where he was murdered in the capital Tunis. The statue, made by the union of Tunisian artists, had been inaugurated in a small ceremony right on the spot where the member of the Popular front opposition party was shot to death on February 6.
