* Tunisia: Speaking of Tunisia the country’s interim government issued an arrest warrant for the capture of Ben Ali and six of his relatives.

* Italy: The pressure of the latest sex scandal seems to be getting to Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi after he engaged in a war of insults with a TV talk show host.
