Tunisian prosecutor says package sent to president’s office was not poisoned

Tunisia’s President Kais Saied waves as he is welcomed by French President Emmanuel Macron (not pictured) before a meeting at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France.

A suspicious envelope sent last week to Tunisia’s Presidency did not contain any toxic, narcotic, dangerous or explosive substance, the country’s Public Prosecutor said on Friday.

The presidency said on Thursday that the office manager for Tunisia’s president had suffered a headache and short-term vision loss after opening the envelope on Monday.

Reports on social media on Wednesday said President Kais Saied had been sent a letter that may have contained poison.

However, the Public Prosecutor said in a statement on Friday that tests carried out on the suspicious envelope by a technical team had found that it did not contain any suspicious toxic, narcotic, dangerous or explosive materials.
