Tunisia Islamists say no new gov't as crisis grows
Tunisia sank deeper into political crisis Thursday, as the ruling Islamist party rejected its own prime minister's decision to replace the government after the assassination of a leftist politician. A few dozen protesters also tried to demonstrate in front of the Interior Ministry but were driven off by tear gas.
