Clashes break out in Tunisia after protester dies of injuries

A Tunisian protester injured during clashes with police has died in hospital, state media reported, leading to more violent confrontations between demonstrators and security services in the town of Sbeitla about three hours south of the capital Tunis.

Haykel Rachdi’s family told local media he had been struck by a tear gas canister after joining the protests that erupted this month on the anniversary of Tunisia’s 2011 revolution that introduced democracy in the North African nation.
