The body of a Polish priest, working at the Manouba Salesian school, near the capital of Tunis, was found in the school's garage on Friday, the official press agency TAP reported.

The victim, Marek Marius Rybinski, had been beaten before being beheaded, the Tunis archbishopric said. In a communique released on Friday, the ministry of interior expressed its profound sadness, saying that the crime was the work of "a group of fascist terrorists" who aim at disturbing public order and instilling terror within Tunisians.

The communique condemned the aggression, saying it will spare no effort to re-establish security and arrest the perpetrators and instigators of this act, adding that an enquiry had been opened by a magistrate officiating at the Manouba tribunal.

Last Friday a group of some 40 bearded men, shouted anti-Jewish slogans in front of the main synagogue in Tunis. The move was quickly condemned by a number of civil society associations and Tunisia's authorities.
