Tunisian Ministry Sues Children’s Magazine Over Molotov Tutorial
Tunisia’s Women and Family Affairs Ministry said it has sued a children’s magazine after it published a story detailing how to make Molotov cocktails.
The Tunis-based ministry said in a statement today that the article, published in the September edition of “Rainbow,” posed a threat to the lives of youngsters and encouraged acts of vandalism or terrorism.
“I take full responsibility for the article’s publication,” Editor-in-Chief Mongi Chebbi said in a phone interview, while declining to elaborate further.
