The jihadist groups being pursued by the army on Tunisia's border with Algeria are veterans from the Islamist rebellion in northern Mali, Interior Minister Lotfi Ben Jeddou told parliament on Wednesday.

"They came from Mali," the minister said, during an open session in the national assembly, referring to the militants that the army has been hunting since last week.
