Tunisia health minister “Slim Chaker” dies after charity marathon

Tunisia’s health minister has died of a heart attack after taking part in a charity marathon to help fight cancer.

Slim Chaker, 56, fell ill after running some 500 meters, and died in a military hospital, the health ministry said.

Prime Minister Youssef Chahed said he had lost a brother and colleague who had died “doing a noble humanitarian act”.

The marathon was held in the coastal town of Nabeul on Sunday to raise funds to build a cancer clinic for children.

Mr Chaker was appointed health minister last month in a major cabinet reshuffle.
