Tunisian Footballer Dies After Setting Himself On Fire

Tunisian football player Nizar Issaoui, 35, died from burns suffered after setting himself alight as a protest against “police injustice”, his family said on Friday. Issaoui, a former player for top-flight side US Monastir and a father of four, published a video on Facebook in which he said the reason for his protest was being falsely accused of terrorism, after he had a minor dispute with a fruit seller.
