BEN AROUS, Tunisia: A Tunisian rapper was handed a two year prison sentence on Thursday for insulting the police in one of his songs, an AFP journalist reported.

The verdict was announced by the judge at a court in the Ben Arous suburb of Tunis where Ala Yaacoub, better known by his rap name of "Weld El 15", was being retried after the same court convicted him in absentia in March.
