Jobless protests stir growing unrest in Tunisia

Fresh protests over unemployment and poverty in central Tunisia on Thursday raised fears of growing social unrest five years after the country’s revolution ignited by similar grievances.

The discontent spread to several towns in central Tunisia, with demonstrators taking to the streets. Protests and clashes with security forces started in Kasserine following the death on Saturday of an unemployed man who was electrocuted atop a power pole near the governor’s office.
