Det gjærer i Tunisia, hvor den arabiske våren begynte. Innlandet protesterer mot at de blir glemt. Onsdag var det kraftige demonstrasjoner i to byer.
Clashes erupted Wednesday in two Tunisian cities when protesters attacked symbols of the state during demonstrations calling for greater investment in their impoverished regions.
Dozens of protesters attempted to storm government offices in the southern mining town of Gafsa before being driven back by tear gas. They later ransacked the local headquarters of the moderate Islamist Ennahda party that dominates the government, tossing the furniture out the third story windows and setting it alight in the street while crowds cheered.
In the northwestern city of Siliana, young men threw stones at police and attacked their stations after the main demonstrations, before being driven off by security forces.
General strikes were held in Siliana, Gafsa and the coastal city Gabes protesting poor economic conditions and what protesters say are unequal investment opportunities favoring the capital and nearby cities.
