A POPULAR Tunisian children’s magazine is to be prosecuted for telling its young readers how to make a petrol bomb.

The latest edition of Qaws Quzah, Arabic for “Rainbow”, featured a piece about the history of petrol bombs in its “Knowledge Corner”, including detailed instructions and a diagram.

“It is an weapon that is often used in riots and acts of sabotage because it is easy to make and use,” the article reads.

The magazine, read for decades by boys and girls aged five to 15, has no political orientation. But the article touched a raw nerve in a country still rocky after last year’s revolution.
