The Arab League has called for peace among all political forces in Tunisia. This week's protests forced the President to flee the country on Friday and head for Saudi Arabia. A written statement by the League urges Tunisians to work together to reach a national consensus in order to put an end to the current political crisis.

Arab League secretary-general Amr Moussa said, "This is a historical series of events. We are about to leave one era, and start a new one in Tunisia. I would firstly like to present our deepest condolences to the families of the victims who died in the protests. We are deeply sorry for the loss of these people. Secondly, we have to look ahead and look to the future."
