Tunisia's chief of army land forces resigns: official

The commander of Tunisia's army land forces has resigned, the defence ministry said on Wednesday, as the military struggles to contain attacks by al Qaeda-linked militants. Earlier this month, 15 Tunisian soldiers were killed when dozens of gunmen with rocket-propelled grenades attacked two checkpoints in Chaambi, one of the deadliest strikes on the North African country's armed forces. "We confirm the resignation of the General Mohammed Salah al-Hamedi, the chief of staff of the Tunisian army land forces, for personal reasons," Rachid Bouhoula, a defence ministry spokesman said, adding that Colonel Major Mohssen al-Farissi would take the role until the president appoints a new chief. Clashes between militants and the armed forces have intensified over the years since a 2011 revolt ousted Tunisia's former autocrat Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali.
