World - Tunisia Nobel winner calls prize a `message` for region

Members of the Tunisian negotiating team that won the Nobel Peace Prize for helping the country overcome a political crisis following its 2011 uprising called the award a message for the region on the power of dialogue. Known as the Quartet, including the powerful UGTT labor union, the team negotiated to end a political deadlock in 2013 that threatened to scuttle the North African state`s political transition after the fall of autocrat Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali. `This is a great joy and pride for Tunisia, but also a hope for the Arab World,` UGTT chief Hussien Abassi told Reuters.

World - Tunisian economy `plagued by petty corruption`, experts say

Petty graft plagues Tunisia`s economy, nearly five years after state corruption triggered the fall of president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, partly due to lack of political will, experts say. Corruption was endemic under long-time dictator Ben Ali, whose close circle -- especially his wife`s family -- had an iron grip on the economy. Public debate has again centred around the topic after President Beji Caid Essebsi in July presented to the cabinet a draft `economic and financial reconciliation` bill that would grant amnesty to those convicted of corruption if they return stolen public money and pay fines.

World - Yemeni president dismisses Houthi concessions as `maneuver`

Yemen`s government dismissed as a `maneuver` on Thursday the Houthis` acceptance of a U.N.-sponsored peace plan and demanded that the Iran-backed group hand back territory it has seized since last year.
