Tunisia general election campaigning begins

Campaigning has begun in Tunisia for the general election on 23 October.

The elections are the first since the revolution in January which inspired the Arab Spring - a wave of uprisings that swept North Africa and the Middle East.

After decades of autocratic leadership and rigged elections, Tunisians will choose a constitutional assembly that will help shape their country's future.

David Campanale reports.
