Tunisian lawmaker rips Israeli flag in parliament

A Tunisian legislator on Tuesday ripped up an Israeli flag during a parliament session to push his demands for a law criminalizing relations with Israel, The Associated Press reported.

A left-wing opposition coalition proposed a bill making it a crime to "normalize" relations with Israel, but the debate has been indefinitely delayed because parliament officials did not see it as a priority.
