Tunisia: Police disperse protests against price hikes with tear gas

Tunisian police fired tear gas to disperse violent protests in Thala on Monday, where hundreds of people are protesting against deteriorating economic conditions. Clashes erupted when police used tear gas to disperse protesters who had been burning tires and hurling stones at officers. Protests in the two major cities of Thala and Sidi Bouzid kicked off when the government announced another... Еще spike in prices and taxes. Tunisia is under great scrutiny by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to cut its deficit and to create jobs, despite the fact that one of Tunisia’s most profitable sectors, tourism, has been suffering since 2015, when the so-called Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) led numerous military attacks against tourists.
