Tunisia's first religious radio station started broadcasting on the first day of Ramadan. The launch is an attempt by the Tunisian government to provide a platform for moderates in the North African country.

Ezzeitouna (The Olive Tree), sponsored by the son-in-law of President Zine Al Abidine Ben Ali, will broadcast programmes about Islam's holy Koran and the life of the Prophet Mohammed.

'The launch of this radio station is part of ... the encouragement of the dissemination of the enlightened thinking and noble values of Islam including notably tolerance, mutual help and moderation,' Tunisia's official news agency TAP stated
