TUNIS, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- Security agencies in Tunisia dismantled a terrorist cell in the northernmost city of Bizerte, the official Tunis Afrique Presse (TAP) reported on Friday.

"This group is composed of five persons, aged between 23 and 35 years old, and were planning a terror operation in Bizerte and the town of Menzel Bourguiba," TAP quoted an unidentified security source as saying.

The terror cell planned to launch attacks on security units, key installations and a military barrack in Bizerte, some 60 km north of the capital Tunis, and Menzel Bourguiba during the upcoming new year celebrations, the source added. Enditem
