William Hague: Moment of opportunity in Tunisia
UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has travelled to Tunisia just weeks after popular protests toppled President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.
Mr Hague held talks with senior members of the country's interim government and told a news conference that the country had a "moment of opportunity" to develop economically and politically.
The overthrow of Mr Ben Ali last month after 23 years in power sparked a wave of similar protests elsewhere in the Arab world, most prominently in Egypt, where 300 people are thought to have died in the unrest.
