TUNIS: A hardline Islamist has been arrested in connection with the killing of a Tunisian politician whose death sparked a wave of protests, a security source reported.

Opposition politician Chokri Belaid was gunned down outside his home on February 6, igniting the biggest protests since the overthrow of Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in 2011.
