Tunisia's prime minister has appointed a new government today, the third caretaker administration since the overthrow of authoritarian leader Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali in January.

Most key ministers from the previous government retained their job in the new cabinet, led by interim Prime Minister Beji Caid Sebsi.

Four ministers who resigned last week were replaced.
