(TAP) - The Criminal Investigation Brigade under the National Guard in Siliana, on Thursday evening, arrested one of the suspects involved in last Saturday's assault of 4 customs officers in Rouhia, a local National Guard source told TAP.

The 30-year old suspect, originally from El Alâa (Kairouan governorate), was arrested close to a café in Siliana downtown. He freed his brother, a smuggler, who had been arrested last Saturday by a Customs patrol.

He had brought with him a group of people to attack the customs officers and take back the seized fuel.

The four customs officers in Rouhia (Siliana governorate) were violently attacked and injured by a group of individuals, last Saturday, after having intercepted two vans loaded with smuggled fuel near Rouhia.
