TUNISIA-ISLAM-TOURISM-FIRE

Tunisian special forces stand guard outside a mausoleum ravaged by fire in what is thought to have been an arson attack which the presidency denounced as a criminal act on January 13, 2013 in Sidi Bou Said. Several shrines dedicated to Muslim saints have been torched or looted in recent months in Tunisia, in acts blamed on hardline Salafists whose radical version of Sunni Islam does not tolerate saints or shrines.
