Arsonists set Tunisian synagogue on fire

A synagogue in the Tunisian city of Ghabes was set on fire by arsonists overnight Monday.
"I condemn this action and I believe those who did it want to create divisions between Jews and Muslims in Tunisia who have lived for decades in peace," Jewish community spokesman Peres Trabelsi told Reuters.
Mainly Muslim Tunisia has one of the largest Jewish communities in North Africa, but attacks are rare.
