TUNIS - One person was killed when police opened fire during clashes with hardline Salafi Muslims in the Tunisian capital Tunis on Tuesday, a security source said, in the latest sign of religious tensions in the home of the "Arab Spring."

"One Salafi was killed after security forces fired when Salafists attacked a police station," a security source said.

Tunisia, whose authoritarian president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, was overthrown in a popular uprising last year, now has an elected Islamist-led government.

The struggle over the role of religion in government and society has since emerged as the most divisive issue in the North African nation, which for decades was considered one of the most secular countries in the Arab world.
