Tunisians protest on border with Libya

Hundreds of Tunisian protesters demonstrated in Ben Guerdane on the Lybian border to demand reopening of the border to permit resumption of trade. A police station and a car were set on fire and police used tear gas and fired shots in the air to disperse the demonstrators. Travellers should always exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without prior notice.
