TUNIS (AFP) - The inaugural session of Tunisia's democratically elected constituent assembly opened Tuesday, 10 months after a popular uprising sent longtime dictator Zine el Abidine Ben Ali fleeing into exile.

The body's 217 members, dominated by the Islamist party Ennahda, gathered in the Bardo palace on the outskirts of Tunis and sang the national anthem, an AFP correspondent reported.
