Tunisia's ministry said a Takfiri element has been detained in the coastal town of al-Marsa for desecrating Islam's Holy Book.

Hawzah News Agency (Marsa,Tunisia) - The man was arrested in his home earlier this week.


He has confessed to have stolen several copies of the Quran from a nearby mosque and kept them in conditions deemed to be disrespectful.

The town's prosecutor has allowed the police to keep the man in custody until trial.


Tunisia is a country in North Africa where some 99 percent of the people are Muslim.
