TUNIS - People have been tortured in Tunisia since the revolution which toppled its ruler four months ago, a United Nations special rapporteur said on Saturday, although he said the practice did not seem to be systematic.

Juan Mendez said Tunisia should also carry out "aggressive" investigations into widespread torture during the authoritarian rule of Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.
