Journalists have fired the editor-in-chief of Tunisia's state-run newspaper for following strict censorship rules under the country's ousted president.
The La Presse newspaper was effectively controlled by President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who fled to Saudi Arabia last weekend after more than 23 years in power.
The paper frequently carried front-page photos of the president and his wife. Criticism of the administration and free editing were all but impossible.
But with the administration's collapse, journalists at the newspaper have revolted and fired the editor-in-chief.
On Monday, a cartoonist for the newspaper told the editor that as journalists the staff could no longer allow him to continue.
The cartoonist said he's 51 years old, and had never lived under a democratic system. He said he's full of emotion at the restoration of democracy.
La Presse will be run by a committee of journalists until editorial leadership is restored.
