Tunisia is braced for further clashes today, with the capital shut down by a general strike and the army deployed ahead of the funeral of opposition leader, Chokri Belaid, which is expected to draw tens of thousands of mourners, and potentially many more.

Officials at Cairo airport said EgyptAir had told them it cancelled two Friday flights. It was not immediately clear if other airlines were affected.
