1739 GMT: Tunisia. The leader of the Ennadha Party, the dominant faction in the ruling coalition, has said he expects that agreement will be reached on a new Cabinet led by Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali.
Rachid Ghannouchi said, "I expect that agreement will be reached and I expect Jebali will remain the prime minister of a coalition government."
Following last week's assassination of opposition politician Chokri Belaid, Jebali proposed a Cabinet of apolitical technocrats but pthers in Ennahda objected.
Ghannouchi said a counter-proposal would be made, "There is a project for a political government that will be presented to the prime minister to form a team of politicians and technocrats."
The Ennadha leader continues, "We don't have much time before we announce this government. The time limit is this week."
Ghannouchi indicated that Ennahda was prepared to compromise over the control of portfolios such as defence, foreign affairs, justice, and interior.
Some groups in the ruling coalition, notably President Moncef Marzouki's Congress for the Republic, had threatened to withdraw their ministers if the Justice and Foreign Ministers were not replaced.

1443 GMT: Egypt. The Public Prosecutor has ordered the arrest of a Muslim cleric, Mahmoud Shaaban, who said leaders of the opposition National Salvation Front should be condemned to death under Islamic law for seeking to topple President Morsi.
In an online video clip for the religious channel al-Hafez, Shaaban singled out Front leaders Mohamed ElBaradei and Hamdeen Sabahi.
The men, aged 18 and 19, were convicted of defamation by the Lower Criminal Court.
Employees and visitors pleaded with protesters to be let in, but the demonstrators held firm, saying that the closure was an "escalation" to pressure President Mohamed Morsy into implementing the goals of the revolution.
