BBC Arabic Screening + Q&A: The Battle For Bizerte

Frontline reporter's film on the theological fight for Tunisia

Life is not always simple in Tunisia, as this BBC Arabic documentary reveals. The country is in a state of disarray with the banning of the group Ansar Al-Sharia, who subscribe to Salafism (a strict approach to the Sunni practice of Islam). Reporter Zuhair Latif’s revealing piece exposes the workings of a Jihadi Salafist group linked to Ansar Al-Sharia. How they implement their laws in Bizerte and how far they’ll go to impose it on others. A Q+A session with Zuhair will take place after, chaired by BBC Arabic presenter Makki Helal. General admission. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
