Undaunted Tunisian protesters rally again
Tunis: Hundreds of Tunisian protesters are demonstrating outside the Prime Minister`s office to demand the removal of members of the ousted president`s regime still in the government.
The rally in Tunis early Tuesday is taking place a day after authorities fired tear gas on protesters in the same area, and some demonstrators shattered the windows of police cars.
Many people bundled up in blankets slept outside near the prime minister`s office overnight, in defiance of a curfew initiated in response to unrest that forced President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to flee Tunisia on January 14.
Tunisia`s so-called "Jasmine Revolution" has sparked scattered protests and civil disobedience in the Middle East and North Africa, and much of the world is watching to see how the birth pangs of Tunisian democracy play out.
