The son of a Tunisian doctor killed in a Daesh bombing in Turkey was sentenced to four years in jail yesterday by a Tunisian court for having joined the terrorist group.
The family drama has gripped the Tunisian public after Fathi Bayoudh, the head of pediatric services at Tunis military hospital, had traveled to Turkey to bring his son home.
But the father was killed in a June 2016 Daesh gun and bomb attack at Istanbul's Atatürk International Airport that left more than 40 dead.
Anwar Bayoudh and his fiance had joined the group in Iraq and then in Syria in autumn 2015, before regretting their decision and calling for help from the family, according to his mother.
He escaped from Daesh but was detained in Turkey on his way back Tunisia before he was deported there.
