TUNIS, Tunisia — Tunisia's main Islamist political party, Ennahda, is denying that information recently brought to light shows it was behind the 2013 assassinations of politicians Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi.

On Oct. 2, a group investigating the slayings said at a press conference in Tunis that it has voice recordings and new documents proving that members of a secret organization connected with Ennahda were not only involved in the assassinations, but also infiltrated state institutions to steal thousands of related documents from the Tunisian Ministry of Interior.
