Tunisian parliament speaker sworn in as new president

TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisian parliament speaker Mohamed Ennaceur was sworn in as interim president on Thursday hours after President Beji Caid Essebsi’s death in a smooth transition of power in the birthplace of the Arab Spring.

Essebsi, 92, helped guide the North African country’s transition to democracy after the 2011 revolution.
