A prominent Tunisian businessman and politician have been hospitalized three days after he began a hunger strike in protest at his continued detention.
Nabil Karoui owns several media companies and is a founder of Tunisia’s second-biggest political party Qalb Tounes.
He says he should have been freed last month when a maximum, six-month period of pre-trial detention expired.
Mr Karoui is facing charges of money laundering and tax evasion.
