Tunisia's interim government has issued an international arrest warrant for the ousted president and his wife, who fled to Saudi Arabia after a popular uprising 12 days ago.

Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali and Leyla El Traboulsi are accused of abusing power to enrich themselves and of taking the money abroad.
