TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia's interim authorities have dismantled the political police and state security apparatus notorious for human rights abuses under the country's ousted leader, an interior ministry source told Reuters on Monday.

President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali was toppled by mass street protests on January 14.
