Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki vowed on Tuesday that his country could guarantee ex-strongman Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's security and a fair trial.

Marzouki, on a visit to France, also said that Tunisia wanted to recover all of the assets allegedly embezzled by the exiled Ben Ali, who was topped in a popular uprising last year.
