Tunisia’s first freely elected president, Beji Caid Essebsi has died at the age of 92, the country’s presidency says.
He was the world’s oldest sitting president. He was admitted to hospital on Wednesday but officials did not say why he was receiving treatment.
Mr Essebsi won Tunisia’s first free elections in 2014 following Arab uprisings across the region.
He was admitted to hospital last month after suffering what officials said was a severe health crisis.
They gave no further details at the time. But Prime Minister Youssef Chahed, who visited him in hospital, urged people to stop spreading “fake news” about his condition.
