The renovation project of the recently torched mausoleum is mid-way through, as it was prepared for a modest reopening to welcome visitors commemorating the birth of Prophet Mohammed, known in Arabic as 'al-Mawlid al-Nabawi'. In the 35th such attack in seven months, unidentified assailants hurled Molotov cocktails at the Sidi Ahmed Uwerfelli shrine in Akuda, 140 kilometres (85 miles) south of Tunis.
