Baku-APA. Tunisian Interior Minister, Ali Laarayedh, said security forces have arrested a number of suspects involved in murdering Chokri Belaid, a main opposition leader who was killed weeks ago, the official TAP press agency reported Thursday, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Laarayedh said that the inquiry into Belaid's assassination, which triggered one of the country's gravest political crisis, has made significant progress and the information about those elements would soon be revealed to the public.

The minister, who promised a "rapid conclusion" to the inquiry, refused to elaborate more details about the suspects.

Earlier this month, Belaid, a leftist sharp critic of Tunisian ruling Islamist Ennahdha party, was shot dead outside his house, which triggered a wave of public anger and nationwide protests ever since.
