1000 GMT: Tunisia. The chairman of the Zitouna Mosque Scientific Committee, Houcine Laabidi, has been suspended after he condemned painting and sculpture at an art exhibition as “blasphemous” and said the artists were “infidels" who should be put to death.
Laabidi interpreted Nadia Jelassi’s piece of art, “Celui qui n’a pas..." as an affront to Muslim women: “That painting was disgraceful, accusing veiled, believing women of being adulterous because they pictured them stoned.”
The Ministry of Religious Affairs responded:
What Laabidi said does not represent the Ministry of Religious Affairs. On the contrary, we condemn what he said. He is the only one responsible for this decision. Inciting violence is a crime punishable and proscribed by law and the ministry will act upon that.
This chairman will be suspended from service. No one can randomly judge and sentence people. We have the judiciary department in charge of sentencing people.

0545 GMT: Egypt. The good news is that there was not much to report on the first day of voting in the Presidential run-off between the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi and Ahmed Shafiq, the last Vice President of the Mubarak regime. There was a patchwork of turnout, with some areas reporting healthy queues of voters and others claimed to be near-empty. There were the typical claims from each camp and from "commentators" of illegal campaigning --- the most creative was the assertion tha voters were "tricked into using pens with disappearing ink so their choice on the ballot would vanish before it was counted" --- but there was no news of violence.
The bad news is that no one knows, in the changing context of Egyptian politics, what the vote means. Thursday's suspension of Parliament, with the ruling Supreme Council of Armed Forces claiming the power to make laws, puts the next President in the position of not knowing if he is master of any authority or merely servant to the SCAF.
One expert's opinion unwittingly cast the light of doubt rather than clarity: "I think that in the coming days, weeks, SCAF will issue what we call a supplementary constitutional declaration by which it will try to further specify the powers of the new president."
Meanwhile, various factions in Egyptian politics, including the Muslim Brotherhood --- whose Freedom and Justice Party were the largest bloc in the now-dormant Parliament --- consider but offer no ideas on what move to make beyond the end of the voting.
