Tunisia in turmoil: Split over anti-US violence

It’s where the Arab Spring began. Now will Tunisia’s moderate Islamist Ennhada party come out more forcefully against hardliners as a result of anti-US attacks? To some, the transitional government is overwhelmed by events; to others, it’s hostage to those in its midst who condone the hardliners.

  • Moncef CHEIKH ROUHOU. Member of Tunisia's Progressive Democratic Party (from Tunis);
  • Jalila HEGHLI-PEUGNET. President, Think Ahead for Tunisia;
  • Adnane BEN YOUSSEF. Representative of the Aljoumhouri Party in France;
  • Steve McINERNEY. Executive Director, Project on Middle East Democracy (from Washington).

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel, Shamira Muhammad.

Watch the second part here.
