"Tunisia's interim president chose a former government minister as a new prime minister on Sunday, appealing for a return to calm following new violent protests that have been hobbling this North African country since the ouster of its long-time autocratic leader. Beji Caid-Essebsi will replace Mohammed Ghannouchi, who resigned earlier Sunday after becoming a major irritant to Tunisians behind the so-called 'Jasmine Revolution' that toppled autocratic President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali last month and sparked a wave of upheaval in the Arab world."
