Tunisia's Ben Ali's riches go on sale

Luxury goods once belonging to the ousted Tunisian leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali and his family have been put up for auction.

Around 40 top-of-the-range cars are being sold off, as well as gold and diamond jewellery and furnishings.

The former leader was forced into exile two years ago, in the first uprising of what became known as the Arab Spring.

Russell Trott reports.
