Tunis – Tunisia 18/01/2021

 Confrontations between Tunisian police and demonstrators began in Tunis, Sunday night, as national demonstrations against the police and the economic crisis approached its second night. Tens of demonstrators set up checkpoints and fire to block the streets about 130 kilometers from the capital, Tunis. The demonstrations started in Siliana and other cities on Friday, after a video clip shared on social media platforms showed a police officer shouting and pushing a shepherd whose sheep had entered the headquarters of the local government. The spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior, Khaled Al-Hayouni, stated that the security forces and the National Guard “have effectively reacted on Saturday night to the attempts to steal and plunder public and private property during riots that took place in parts of the country.”
