      Tunisian Minister Resigns Over Trip to Israel

      A trip to Israel in 2006 forced Tunisia’s new Tourism Minister to resign just hours after she was sworn in, Al Arabiya reported Thursday, citing Tunisia’s state news agency TAP.

      According to the report, Amel Karboul submitted her resignation to Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa after the trip was brought up during a parliamentary session to give a vote of confidence to Jomaa’s new cabinet, stirring up controversy among parliament members.
