TUNIS, July 31 (Reuters) - Tunisia's president on Saturday
called on banks to reduce interest rates, saying the measure was
needed because social and economic conditions in the country
were very bad.
President Kais Saied on Sunday invoked emergency powers to
seize control of government, remove the prime minister and
freeze parliament in a move his foes have called a coup.
