Tunisia bans Wonder Woman screenings

Hollywood movie Wonder Woman has been banned in Tunisia due to the leading actress’ Israeli heritage.

The film was pulled before the first screenings on June 8 after a lawsuit called Gail Gadot a ‘champion Zionist.’

Tunisia joins Lebanon and Algeria in banning the film due to Gadot’s Israeli heritage and past links to the country’s military.

The Tunisian Association of Young Lawyers put forward the lawsuit.

The Tunisian courthouse has halted release of the film while it examines the lawsuit, reports the Jerusalem Post.

Following the decision, screenings of the film were removed from cinema booking websites.
