Basma Khalfaoui Belaid (C), the wife of assassinated Tunisian opposition leader and outspoken government critic Chokri Belaid, mourns over the latter's death after he was shot dead with bullets fired from close range on February 6, 2013, at a clinic in Tunis. President Moncef Marzouki has cancelled his participation in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation summit in Cairo and is heading back to Tunisia after the murder of opposition leader Chokri Belaid, the presidency said. His assassination comes at a time when Tunisia is witnessing a rise in violence fed by political and social discontent two years after the mass uprising that toppled the former dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
