jailed-journalistZouhair Makhlouf, the editor of El-Mawkif, an opposition daily for the Progressist Democratic Party, was arrested on October 21 and charged for a video report he made on the state of the environment in the industrial zone of Nabeul in northeast Tunisia, AFP said.

The complaint was filed by a craftsman who was questioned for the report and who accused the journalist of breaking the law on publishing photos without consent.

The court upheld the complaint that the photos were illegal and published in conditions offensive to the plaintiff's dignity.

Makhlouf was also ordered to pay 6,000 dinars (3,100 euros) in damages.
