Tunisia imposed a nationwide curfew on Friday after two days of violent protests over the country’s dire unemployment rate.
The curfew from 8 pm until 5 am will begin on Friday due to attacks by demonstrators on public and private property that “represent a danger to the country and its citizens”.
Police said that one of their stations came under attack by protesters throwing stones and carrying Molotov cocktails, one night prior to the country’s decision to impose a strict curfew.
Authorities also reported that banks, stores and warehouses were looted by groups of angry youths in the outskirts of the capital.
The country’s unemployment rate for young people remains at thirty percent.
