Tunisia’s assembly began to vote Friday for the new constitution that its members have spent the last two years writing, a crucial step in the North African nation’s transition to democracy. The assembly’s 217 members need to approve each of the new document’s 150 articles with a simple majority vote before passing the entire document with a two-thirds majority. (AP Photo/Aimen Zine)
