The attacker sat upon the policemen with a knife at around 8:00am (0700 GMT) stabbing "one in the back of the neck and another at the level of his eyes." Said Sofiene Sliti, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office.

The wounded officer had to undergo an operation in hospital and remain in an intensive care, a medical source told AFP.
