Couple jailed in Tunisia for kissing inside car

An appeal court in Tunisia has upheld the public indecency conviction of a couple arrested in September for kissing in a car.

Nessim Ouadi, who is a French national, was also accused of refusing to obey police after they apprehended him and his Tunisian girlfriend.

The couple were given lighter sentences - four months for the man and two for the woman - than the original terms handed out at their October trial.

The public prosecutor said the case had been misrepresented in the international press and that the couple had been naked and engaged in a sexual act when stopped.
