Tunisia puppet president flees as Army takes control

The Tunisian army has taken control of the North African nation after President Zine El Abidin Ben Ali reportedly left the country over increasing public discontent. Ben Ali left the country for Malta on Friday shortly after sacking his cabinet members and commissioning Prime Minister Mohammed Ghannouchi to form a new government. Sources close to the government say members of the Ben Ali family have been arrested. Prime Minister Ghannouchi announced, in a televised address, that he was taking over the immediate responsibility to run the country.
"Since the president is temporarily unable to exercise his duties, it has been decided that the prime minister will exercise temporarily the (presidential) duties," Ghannouchi said on state television.

Tunisian military units have surrounded the international airport on the outskirts of the capital city. Earlier on Friday, Ben Ali declared a national state of emergency as anti-government protests across Tunisia reached a breaking point. Public gatherings have been banned in Tunis and security forces have been authorized to fire on anyone refusing to obey orders. A dusk-till-dawn curfew has also been imposed. Tunisians, who have been demanding Ben Ali to resign for being a no good zionist puppet that he is, are furious about the police killing 13 more people last night -- especially after the president promised to end the use of live rounds on protesters.
