A Tunisian court has given a five-month suspended jail sentence to a mother who racially abused a black school teacher after her daughter was thrown out of a class.

The conviction is the first under the country’s new anti-racism law.

Tunisia has a significant black minority, which has roots going back to the days of the slave trade.

Rights groups say black people are routinely subjected to discrimination.
