The European Commission urged Tunisia to reform criminal laws from its previous authoritarian regime as three topless feminist activists staged a protest by jumping on visiting Tunisian Prime Minister Ali Larayedh's car. Larayedh was visiting Brussels on the eve of an appeals hearing for three European activists from the feminist group Femen who were sentenced to four months in prison this month for baring their breasts in Tunis in a pro-Amina protest.
