A suspected jihadist was killed on Monday in an exchange of fire with security forces in a mountainous area of central Tunisia, a defence ministry spokesman said. "For two weeks, military forces have been tracking a group of terrorists in the Mount Mghila area,' the defence ministry's Belhassan Oueslati told AFP. Mount Mghila is adjacent to Mount Chaambi, which is considered to be the main rear base of Islamist militants on the border with Algeria.
