TUNIS (Reuters) - Qatar will give $1.25 billion in aid to Tunisia to help the North African country's struggling economy, the Emir of Qatar told an investment conference in Tunis on Tuesday.

Qatar and France are the main sponsors of the conference, where Tunisia is seeking to reverse a drop in foreign investment since its 2011 uprising.
