Thou­sands protest in Tu­nisian cap­i­tal

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WORLD -

TU­NIS: Sev­eral thou­sand Is­lamists took to the streets of Tu­nis to de­fend the Is­lamist-led govern­ment from pop­u­lar de­mands for it to re­sign over the as­sas­si­na­tion of a sec­u­lar op­po­si­tion politi­cian.

As Is­lamists and sec­u­lar op­po­nents staged ri­val protests over the fu­ture of Tu­nisia’s govern­ment, the in­te­rior min­is­ter pointed the fin­ger of sus­pi­cion at a hard­line Is­lamist, say­ing the same gun had been used on Thurs­day as in a po­lit­i­cal killing ear­lier this year that pro­voked vi­o­lent protests.
