US Secretary of State John Kerry has promised Tunisia help in the fight against Islamist militants.

During a brief visit to the country where the ‘Arab Spring’ began, he praised the country’s democratic progress.

After a crisis last year brought on by the killing of two opposition leaders, Tunisia has now adopted a new constitution and the ruling Islamists have stepped aside for a caretaker administration to govern until elections.
