Tunisian President Accidentally Calls French President by Wrong Name at Anti-terror March

Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi made a diplomatic gaffe during a solidarity march in the nation's capital on Sunday, after he publicly referred to French President François Hollande as “François Mitterand." Both Essebsi and Hollande attended an anti-terror protest in Tunis that reportedly attracted thousands of people. Demonstrators marched toward the Bardo National Museum, the site of a an attack on March 18 that left 22 people dead. Quickly realizing his error after audience members exclaimed in shock, Essebsi apologized for the name gaffe, and gave Hollande a cheek kiss.
