BERLIN (Reuters) - Tunisia again left out injury-hit striker Francileudo dos Santos from their starting lineup on Friday for a Group H match in which they need to beat Ukraine to be confident of reaching the World Cup last 16. Coach Roger Lemerre named an unchanged side from the one that went down 3-1 to Spain on Monday, with Ziad Jaziri leading the attack.

Spain's 4-0 thrashing of Ukraine last week gave Luis Aragones's side control of the group. A second win over Tunisia in Stuttgart will secure their place in the last 16. Ukraine, stinging from the rout, have to wipe it from their minds before taking on...

By Charles Masters CANNES (Hollywood Reporter) - For most in the film industry, cinema in Tunisia means a sun-and-sand location for visiting pictures like the "Star Wars" saga. But the North African country of 10 million people has a vibrant, if small, local industry, whose output is showcased Thursday in the Cannes World Cinema sidebar. Tunisia is by far the smallest film market among the seven countries featured in the World Cinema section in terms of domestic box office, with...

By Ahmed Seif and William Maclean TRIPOLI, Libya -- Most vacationers seeking a north African break tend to think of Morocco's exquisite medieval cities or the beaches of sun-kissed Tunisia. And that's usually only after ticking Egypt and its ancient wonders off their "Seen That" list. But Libya? Africa's fourth-largest country remains an unusual destination: Outsiders still tend to associate it with defiance of the West and international disputes about terrorism.
