PHOTO GALLERY: Tunisia demonstrations against austerity measures turn violent

Tear gas smoke billows as Tunisian protestors throw stones towards security forces in Tunis' Djebel Lahmer district early on January 10, 2018 after price hikes ignited protests in the North African country.
Fresh scuffles broke out overnight night between Tunisian protesters and police, a day after the death of a man in violent demonstrations over rising costs and government austerity. Hundreds of young people took to the streets of Tebourba, west of Tunis, pelting stones at security forces who responded by firing tear gas at them, an AFP journalist said.

Similar clashes were seen in the impoverished inland regions of Kasserine and Jelma, near Sidi Bouzid, the cradle of the protests that sparked the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings. Clashes also erupted in the central town of Gafsa

Tunisia's prime minister promised Tuesday to crack down on rioters after violent protests over price hikes left one person dead and raised fears of broader unrest in the country that was the birthplace of the Arab Spring.
