Extradition of ex-Gadhafi PM may split Tunisia gov't

TUNIS, Tunisia--Tunisia's president has rebuked his prime minister over the extradition of a close associate of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Sunday, prompting fears of a split in the ruling coalition.

Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali is from the Islamist Ennahda party, while President Moncef Marzouki is from the liberal Congress for the Republic.

Marzouki said his prime minister overstepped his authority when he ordered the extradition of Al-Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi, Gadhafi's last prime minister.
