Tunisian journalist Abdel Razaq Zorgi sets himself ablaze in protest

Tunisian journalist Abdel Razaq Zorgi has gave up the ghost in the
wake of setting himself ablaze over cruel living conditions in Tunisia.

His demise triggered protests in the city after dark and conflicts with police who fired tear gas at dozens of people who had set tyres ablaze and blocked the main street.

Six members of the security forces were injured and nine protesters were detained, interior ministry spokesperson Sofiane al-Zaq said but after a brief morning calm, protesters were back on the streets of Kasserine in the afternoon after Zorgi’s funeral.
