A group of relatives of deposed Tunisian leader Zine Abidine Ben Ali have taken refuge in a hotel at Disneyland Paris, a security source told AFP on Saturday.
Ben Ali fled Tunisia on Friday as he and members of his family and inner circle escaped a street uprising against his 23 years of authoritarian rule. He is himself now in Saudi Arabia after France refused to allow him entry.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, a French security official said that a group of his relatives accompanied by their own security detail had taken VIP accommodation at the Disneyland Paris resort.
They had been there for “several days” before Ben Ali’s flight.
