Two Tunisian rappers have been sentenced to 21 months in prison by a court in Tunisia for insulting officials, violating public morals and defamation. They were arrested at a concert in August.

One of the two rappers known as Weld El 15 received a two year jail term in June for writing a song insulting the police but was freed following public protests.
