Protesters in Tunisia call for government to resign

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Tunis on Saturday ) and demanded the government's immediate resignation. Protesters formed a human chain as they marched on the street, some waved the Tunisian flag and others held banners that read: "Tunisia" and "For The Sake of Saving Tunisia". The small North African nation, birthplace of the Arab uprisings of 2011, is locked in a stand-off between its Islamist-led government and secular opposition that could be decisive for the success of its experiment in democracy. Tunisia could still make this work, if its political class can rise above party rivalries to follow a road map to the rule of law laid out in 2011, analysts said. Optimism has waxed and waned over the past weeks as the central figure of Tunisian politics, Islamist leader Rached Ghannouchi, offered to consider a deal for new elections that could produce an orderly transfer of power to the opposition.
