TUNIS - The leader of the Islamist party which won Tunisia's first free election appealed for calm in the provincial town where post-vote clashes have broken out, and accused forces linked to the country's ousted president of fanning the violence.

Speaking at his first news conference since his Ennahda party won the election, Rachid Ghannouchi also said the party would respect all Tunisia's international treaties when it forms a new government.
