Thousands Attend Chokri Belaid's Funeral

Tens of thousands of angry Tunisians turned out Friday at the funeral of assassinated secular opposition leader Chokri Belaid.

They chanted anti-Islamist slogans as they surged around an open army truck carrying Belaid's coffin, draped in a red-and-white Tunisian flag.

"Belaid, rest in peace, we will continue the struggle," they chanted, holding portraits of Belaid.
