World - Tunisia`s Nobel Peace Prize bolsters fragile democracy

Tunisia`s National Dialogue Quartet winning the Nobel Peace Prize is a breath of fresh air for a fragile emerging democracy facing serious security issues that threaten its economy. The prize comes nearly five years after a desperate Tunisian street vendor set himself on fire, touching off a wave of unrest that toppled long-time dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and inspiring uprisings across the region. It was awarded jointly to quartet comprising the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT), the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA), the Tunisian Human Rights League and the Tunisian Order of Lawyers.

World - Britain`s SABMiller rejects new AB InBev bid in beer battle

British beer giant SABMiller rejected Wednesday an improved $103-billion takeover from Anheuser-Busch InBev, arguing it was too low, but a split emerged with top shareholder Altria. AB InBev, the world`s biggest brewer behind lager brands like Budweiser, Corona and Stella Artois, had earlier lodged its third offer worth £68 billion or 92 billion euros for the British maker of Foster`s, Grolsch and Pilsner Urquell. `The board of SABMiller has now met formally to consider the new proposal announced by AB InBev today,` the company said in a brief statement rebutting the latest takeover tilt from the Belgian-Brazilian drinks firm.

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.
