In Tunisia's Mediterranean resort of Sousse, exhausted medics struggle to stem surging coronavirus deaths, desperately monitoring oxygen supplies beside patients' beds, while on the beach tourists relax in the sun. At the Bellevue Park hotel in Sousse, life at the Mediterranean resort seems to be going on almost as normal. "I had my two jabs," said Doris Brecking, a 71-year-old German tourist tanning by the pool."In the hospital, there are sick people, but here at the hotel, everything is fine with the health rules...

Tunisia-Politics / Ghannouchi: Tunisia-The leader of Ennahda hospitalized - Sources
Tunis, August 2 (Reuters) - Rached Ghannouchi, "Speaker" of Parliament Tunisian and leader of the Ennahda party, was admitted to the hospital on Sunday, we learned from two of his advisers, while the country crosses a political crisis and the moderate Islamist training accused President Kaïs Saïed to have led a coup.
The Advisors of Rachet Ghannouchi, who is 80 years old, did not specify the reasons for this hospitalization, which intervenes after Ghannouchi was treated last month for a week after contracted COCI-19. He was also briefly admitted to the hospital on Saturday.
In the ranks of the Ennahda party, the national political crisis has amplified the divisions on the leadership of Rached Ghannouchi, some replacing its management against the "putsch" of Kaïs Saïed and its strategic choices from the legislative elections of 2019.
