Tunisia will establish a National Intelligence Centre tasked with compiling information and coordinating between the various intelligence agencies.

The decision came during a ministerial council meeting attended by Prime Minister Youssef Chahed on Tuesday night attended by the ministers of interior, defence and justice and security leaders.

The National Intelligence Centre will plan international cooperation in the field of intelligence and adjust the national plan for intelligence gathering.

The council has also announced orders to organise the work of television production companies working for foreign channels.

The new decisions come after an Israeli correspondent working for Channel 10 prepared a TV report on the assassination of engineer Mohamed Al-Zawari from outside his home in Sfax.
