Tunisian "day of rage"

Tunisian "day of rage" takes aim at premier

(Reuters) - Tens of thousands of people filled the streets of central Tunis on Friday in what they called a "day of rage," calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Mohamed Ghannouchi, a former ally of the ousted president.

Security forces fired in the air in an unsuccessful attempt to disperse the rally, the biggest since uprisings in North Africa's most developed country ended President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali's 23-year rule on January 14 and sparked pro-democracy protests across the Arab world, witnesses said.

Protesters, some carrying images of Ghannouchi's face merging seamlessly into that of the Ben Ali's, shouted "shame on the government!" and "Ghannouchi step down!" in a din that could be heard for miles.

(Reuters) - Tunisian soldiers fired in the air and used tear gas in an effort to disperse dozens of youths who broke shop windows in central Tunis Saturday.

Police told a Reuters reporter at the scene during the confrontation that the youths were loyalists of deposed president Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali.

The North African state's crime rates have soared since a popular uprising toppled Ben Ali on January 14. Security officials often say his supporters are trying to destabilize the country.
