Tunisia seeks to form unity cabinet

Tunisian political leaders have started efforts to fill the power vacuum created by the fall of President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali amid mass protests.

Interim leader Foued Mebazaa - who was sworn in on Saturday - promised to form a unity government.

The country appears to be mostly quiet, although gunfire was heard in Tunis during a second overnight curfew.
