Tunisian Islamist leader urges Salafists to oust liberals
Statements made by the head of Tunisia’s Islamist Ennahda party have worried secular-minded citizens in the north African country. An online video shows Rached Ghannouchi calling on young Salafists to drive liberals from the country’s top jobs. Ghannouchi said the comments were taken out of context, and dated back to a meeting with Salafist youths held in February.
