    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, JANUARY 19 - The Tunisian interior ministry has declared a curfew from 6 PM Tuesday evening until 5 AM Wednesday morning after police were forced to use tear gas to disperse protestors in the morning. Unemployed youth have been holding the protest for days in front of the governorate offices of Kasserine in western central Tunisia to open an inquiry into the death of a young protestor who had been demonstrating for clarification on a job he had been promised. The young man was electrocuted when he climbed an electricity pylon. The protestors set some tires on fire and forced the police to intervene in mass. Demonstrations against the marginalization of the region were also held in the working-class areas of Zouhour and Ennour. High unemployment remains a concern in several disadvantaged areas of the country. (ANSAmed).
