Shops looted, train station burned in Tunisia
Tunis: The Tunisian capital`s main train station has been burned to the ground, and shops have been sacked and looted in violence that came after the North African nation`s President fled the country.
Tunisians have awoken following a tense night after their autocratic president was driven from power by violent protests over soaring unemployment and corruption. The end of a curfew revealed the extent of the damage.
The main train station in Tunis is in ruins after a fire there. A big chain store outside the capital was vandalised and sacked. A report said that the Army was intervening there on Saturday to try to stop the pillaging.
Tunisian airspace is still closed early Saturday, a day after a state of emergency was declared.
