Italians seize Tunisian yacht
ROME (AP) -- Italian officials have seized a yacht said to have belonged to the family of deposed Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
The 14-meter (45-foot) boat was anchored in the port of Italy's southern island of Lampedusa.
The LaPresse news agency said Tunisian authorities had asked Italy to seize any property owned by the family on the ground that it belongs to the Tunisian people.
Ben Ali went into exile in Saudi Arabia.
The report says the Atlantique 43, seized by financial police Wednesday, is worth euro1 million ($1.4 million).
