Tunisia: Rocks fly as protesters clash with police in Tebourba

Clashes between police and protesters continued in Tebourba on Tuesday, after one demonstrator was killed and several injured in protests the day before. Police used tear-gas against protesters who threw stones and rocks at officers. Protests against deteriorating economic conditions kicked off across the country on Monday following the government's announcement of austerity measures and tax... Еще hikes. Tunisia is under pressure from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and its partners 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 self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) carried out numerous military attacks against tourists.
