Tunisia is located on a convergent tectonic boundary (where subduction zones form) so tectonic activity is certainly not unheard of. Suddenly
appearing lakes are usually signs of recent tectonic activity.
As the article states, the "radiation", if present, would most likely be in the form of run off from local phosphorous mines (as opposed to
radiation from a meteor). However, until tested, who can really say?
I once read an excellent interview with a famous (French i think) geologist who said he would never live near a lake due to the uncertain geology that
usually surrounds them. Seems a bit alarmist to me but then i guess it depends upon the location - Lake District = ok, Lake Baikal = hmm.....
Thanks for sharing and thanks also to Dolluka for that map.
