Tunisia protests

This has been going on for awhile, it is pretty boring; just your standard Muslim country uprising accompanied with violent protests.

Tunisian police have clashed with protesters during an anti-government rally near the main government compound, witnesses say.

Some of the protesters had apparently tried to breach barricades, and riot police responded by firing tear gas.

Many of the protesters have been camping out near the prime minister's offices demanding all politicians with links to the old regime step down.

The former president was forced into exile earlier this month.

A countrywide uprising sparked by concerns over the economy and corruption ousted long-term leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, who fled to Saudi Arabia on 14 January.
