Tunisia: Protests over unemployment turn into chaos in Tataouine

Clashes erupted in the streets of ‪southern Tunisia's Tataouine on Sunday, with protesters blocking roads as they demanded employment in the oil and gas sector. Footage shows tyres and other objects set ablaze and roads filled with tear gas, with police forces patrolling the area. The demonstrations, which reportedly turned violent following the arrest of an activist by the authorities, have been taking place for weeks, with people urging the government to fulfill a 2017 promise to create jobs in the city.
