Journalist self-immolates in Tunisia

Recommended Posts


Clashes between Tunisian protesters and security forces spread from an impoverished city overnight, the authorities said on Wednesday, as anger grew over the death of a journalist who set himself on fire over economic conditions.

In the western city of Kasserine police fired tear gas at youths throwing stones during a second night of unrest.

Clashes also broke out in the eastern town of Jbeniana, where a police officer was injured, and in Tebourba, in the north, where at least five people were arrested, said Walid Hkima, a national security spokesman.


“There’s a rupture between the political class and young people, especially those living in insecurity in Tunisia’s interior who see their future as uncertain,” said Messaoud, president of the Tunisian Forum for Economic and Social Rights.
