Conservative Muslims clash with secularists in Tunisia

Tension over the place of religion in the North African country's public life is rising.

    Tunisian police have arrested Islamist activists after they clashed with a group of lawyers outside the capital's main courthouse, as tensions rise over the country's post-revolutionary future.

    They were demanding the release of their comrades, arrested during protests over a film some said offended Islam.

    Six members of the Salafist movement were arrested after they stormed a cinema and broke its glass doors in a bid to stop the screening of the film: "Neither Allah, nor Master" on secularism in Tunisia.
