TUNIS - Tunisia's ruling Islamist party, Ennahda, on Thursday condemned what it called a "coup against legitimacy" after the army ousted Islamist Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president.

"Ennahda rejects what happened and believes legitimacy is represented by President Mohamed Morsi, and no one else," said a statement from the party, which has headed the Tunisian government since 2011.

The divide between secularists and Islamists in Tunisia has widened since the ouster of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali more than two years ago triggered a wave of uprisings around the Arab world, including in Egypt.
