Official: Tunisia expected to announce new government

A government official says Tunisia's prime minister is expected to announce the country's second interim government since the ouster of the former dictator.
Prime Minister Mohamed Ghannouchi, who served the former Tunisian strongman Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, has been trying to replace five ministers who resigned shortly after his caretaker government was formed.
A government official says Ghannouchi is expected to announce the new cabinet on Thursday. The official spoke anonymously, since he was authorized to speak publicly about the issue.
Protesters are demanding that the new government not include members of the Ben Ali's party.
Ben Ali was forced into exile on Jan. 14, following large-scale protests.
