Reporters Without Borders today condemned the action of the Tunisian authorities in banning issues of two French publications, the daily Le Monde and the weekly Le Nouvel Observateur, and blocking the website of a third, the daily Libération, because of articles by Tunisian journalist Taoufik Ben Brik critical of President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali.
