The suspected assassin of Tunisian opposition figure Chokri Belaid, whose death almost exactly a year ago sparked political turmoil, has been killed in a police raid, the interior minister said Tuesday.The killing of Belaid and prominent opposition MP Mohamed Brahmi months later led the opposition to accuse the Ennahda party -- a moderate Islamist movement -- of failing to rein in jihadists suppressed under long-ruling dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.Ennahda rose to power through Tunisia's first-ever free election in 2011 after Ben Ali was toppled by an uprising that ignited the Arab Spring.
