(TAP)- Eight people were arrested by national guards in Sidi Bouzid over apology for and incitement to terrorism, the Interior Ministry Saturday said in a press release.

They allegedly had ties to a terror cell dismantled on December 28 in the delegation of Jelma, Sidi Bouzid, the Ministry further indicated.

The eight were held in custody and legal action will be brought against them over membership of a terrorist organisation.

The Interior Ministry Thursday said a terror cell was broken up in Sidi Bouzid; its four members used to hold secret meetings at the local mosque. Twelve people have been arrested so far in connection with this case.
