Tight security for 'historic' Tunisia vote

A Tunisian woman waves her national flag as she shows her ink-stained finger after voting in the country's first post-revolution in Tunis on October 26, 2014Tunisians voted Sunday in an election seen as pivotal to establishing democracy in the cradle of the Arab Spring uprisings, with security forces deployed heavily to avert extremist attacks. Tunisia has been hailed as a beacon of hope compared with other chaos-hit countries like Libya and Egypt where regimes were also toppled. Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa hailed Sunday’s vote as “historic”. On Friday, Tunisian police killed six suspected militants — five of whom were women — in a raid on a house in a Tunis suburb after a policeman was killed in an earlier firefight with the suspects.
