Gal Gadot stars alongside Tom Bateman and Annette Bening in the role

Tunisia has withdrawn from cinemas a new film starring the Israeli actress Gal Gadot.

The decision had been taken following protests by activists who say Gadot served in the Israeli army and supports Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories, the Culture Ministry said.

The film, a new adaptation of the murder mystery Death on the Nile by the British author Agatha Christie, has already been banned in Kuwait and Lebanon.

Tunisia, which hosts some major festivals to celebrate Arab and international films, also banned the 2017 film Wonder Woman, which featured Gal Gadot in the lead role.
