The leader of Tunisia’s main opposition Ennahda party, Rached Ghannouchi, has been summoned for questioning by anti-terrorism police.

Mr Ghannouchi is also the speaker of parliament, which was controversially dissolved this week by President Kais Saïed – a move denounced by the opposition leader.

On Thursday Tunisia’s anti-terrorism unit summoned more than thirty politicians who’d attended an online parliamentary session, in defiance of the president.

The session had been the first since President Saïed suspended the chamber eight months ago and seized wide-ranging powers.
