BINTANGNEWS.com – Media PressTV berbahasa Inggris melaporkan,” Para pelayat dan delegasi internasional telah berkumpul di Istana Carthage Tunisia untuk mengucapkan selamat tinggal kepada presiden pertama yang terpilih secara demokratis di negara itu, Beji Caid Essebsi.
Pemakaman kenegaraan dihadiri oleh para pemimpin asing, termasuk Presiden Prancis Emmanuel Macron, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani dari Qatar, Raja Spanyol Felipe VI, Presiden Aljazair Abdelkader Ben Saleh dan Presiden Palestina Mahmoud Abbas.

Ribuan warga Tunisia berbaris di jalan-jalan ibukota, mengibarkan bendera, saat prosesi pemakaman menuju istana. Banyak jalan telah ditutup dan pasukan keamanan dikerahkan di sebagian besar wilayah Tunis dan dekat pemakaman Al Jellaz.

Essebsi, yang membantu memandu transisi negara Afrika Utara ke demokrasi setelah revolusi 2011, meninggal pada usia 92 pada hari Kamis, 25 Juli.
