According to a source in Kairouan’s National Guard, the suspected explosive was discovered by a little girl in the bus station of Kairouan, and the police subsequently intervened to dismantle the device.
â€œThe bomb was not harmful as it was not made of Trinitrotoluene (TNT) or any other dangerous chemical compound. When I saw it, I realized that it was not made by someone adept,â€ said the same source.
The bomb was made of filaments, two batteries, and a bottle of gas, the source reported, and an investigation has been opened to establish the identity of those responsible for the making of the device.
â€œSuch a bomb was constructed to spread terror in Kairouan,â€ he reckoned.
According to a source in Kairouan’s local government, another bomb with the same characteristics was discovered 3 days ago in front of the regional station of Tunisian radio Sabra FM.
