Tunisia's Islamists hold rally in capital

Hundreds of supporters of Tunisia's governing Islamist party, Ennahda, are attending a rally in the centre of the capital, Tunis, a day after huge crowds attended a murdered opposition leader's funeral.

The demonstrators have gathered outside the National Theatre and are chanting: "We are Muslims, we will not be moved."

In the meantime, Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali has pledged to form a new non-partisan government of technocrats by the middle of next week, Tunisian media report.
