Ennhada changes tack on Salafists

The largest party in Tunisia's ruling coalition, Ennhada, has long been criticised for its tolerance of the country's Salafists, a conservative branch of Islam. Salafist extremists have been blamed for the attack which killed the US ambassador to Libya in September and since then, Ennhada appears to be changing strategy. Under pressure from the US, more than 100 Salafists have been arrested in Tunisia, adding to the dozens already being held for violent protests in the past.
