Tunisia's assembly finishes new constitution
Tunisia's national assembly approved the final articles of the country's new constitution on Thursday, three years after their uprising against autocrat Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali inspired a wave of Arab revolts.


Tunisia's new charter, which the assembly will likely vote on Saturday to approve fully, is widely praised for its inclusiveness, among countries who toppled long-standing leaders in their own 2011 "Arab Spring" uprisings. (Reuters)
