    Background: With the announcement of an agreement between France and Tunisia over the evacuation of 7,000 French troops from Tunisian soil - within the next four months - Tunisians were rejoicing by tearing down road barricades set up to prevent possible clashes with the troops.

    Up went the flags again in the Republic, once a former French Protectorate. And at the same time, as shown here on a stretch of the route to Bizerta, road blocks were shovelled away.

    However at the end of the Bizerta road lies another obstacle to Franco-Tunisian relations: Biserta, the Tunisia seaport held by the French as a naval base ranking next to Toulon.

    Tunisia hopes for the evacuation eventually of the French Navy from the base but under the new agreement, Biserta is not earmarked as an evacuation are.
