Tunisia arrests 237 in clashes, dozens hurt

Tunisia arrests 237 in clashes, dozens hurt

Hundreds more were arrested earlier in the week, with about 600 now in custody in total.

Police have fired tear gas to disperse crowds in the capital Tunis and nearby town Tebourba.

An interior ministry spokesman said at least 44 people had been arrested, including 16 in Kasserine and 18 in working-class areas near Tunis. "I don't think this is the right time for price hikes". "Today we have a meeting with the opposition parties to coordinate our movements, but we will stay on the street and we will increase the pace of the protests until the unjust financial law will be dropped", Hammami said.

Tunisia is widely seen as the sole democratic success story of the 2010-11 Arab Spring uprisings.

The 2018 budget also raises customs taxes on some imports, and the Tunis government is trying to cut the public sector wage bill through voluntary redundancies.

The days of protests prompted fears of a new political crisis in the North African country that inspired the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings.

What is the economic situation in Tunisia?

Groups of young people, some masked, threw rocks at a police station and were met by volleys of tear gas, and had running scuffles through nearby streets, witnesses said.

Activists have called for a major demonstration tomorrow against the country's austerity measures which will provoke an increase to daily cost of living.

Clashes erupted elsewhere in the capital and other towns, with protesters blocking roads and throwing stones at police, who responded with rubber bullets, according to Mosaique FM radio.

A Jewish school on the island of Djerba was also petrol bombed.

Police have insisted they did not kill the man and said he suffered from "respiratory problems".

Individuals with "criminal records" infiltrated the protests in Kelibia, in the Nabeul governorate, TAP said.

"In coordination with the civil authorities, more than 2,000 army troops have been deployed to protect sovereign institutions and vital facilities", Defense Ministry spokesman Belhassen al-Waslati told the Turkish Anadolu Agency.

"What happened is violence that we can not accept".

Prime Minister of Tunisia Youssef Chahed paid a surprise visit to al-Battan, a town in Manouba province in Tunisia, on January 10 after protests and attacks on state security offices.

The clashes have led to more than 200 arrests and dozens of injuries as protesters across the country vent their anger over austerity measures. The demonstrations are largely driven by economic grievances.
