Islamists and secularists clash in Tunisia

As the country awaits the formation of its new government, tensions grow between groups.



    Tunisians are yet to get a new government after political infighting delayed the appointment of new ministers. 

    In the country's capital, Tunis, outside the national assembly, crowds gathered on Thursday to protest what they say is the growing influence of Islamists.

    It follows the occupation of a university campus by a religious group, which wants male and female students segregated.
