TUNIS, Tunisia — Several hundred people on Saturday gathered outside the French embassy to urge the recall of France's new ambassador to Tunisia.

The protesters were denouncing what they called Boris Boillon's "insulting behavior" at his introductory press conference, though it is not clear what exactly he said or did.

Boillon arrived in Tunis last week to replace the previous French ambassador, Pierre Menat — recalled to Paris during the uprising that toppled Tunisia's longtime leader last month. Menat had been in the post for just over a year.
