Tunisian police have arrested two fugitive Islamic fundamentalists, one of whom was condemned to death in absentia in a mass trial last month, sources said. Ali Laaridh, 32, and Fadhel Beldi, 35, reportedly were seized in the Tunis area, but no further details were given. Laaridh, sentenced to hang, and Beldi, given a life term, were among 90 charged with trying to overthrow the government. Two of those in custody were executed a week ago.
