Tunisia appoints first female prime minister.

Tunisia's President has appointed the country's first female prime minister, a 63-year-old professor who will lead a transitional government after the head of state sacked the previous prime minister and suspended parliament.

Najla Bouden Ramadhane, a professor at a prestigious engineering school, appears to be the first woman appointed as head of government in an Arab League nation.

Sudan has a female Foreign Minister and Lebanon's Defence Minister is a woman.

President Kais Saied named Professor Bouden to the post in a surprise decision and instructed her to create a new cabinet as soon as possible, according to a statement from the President's office.

Tunisia has been without a head of government and in limbo since Mr Saied froze the country's parliament and seized executive powers on July 25.
