Tunisian protesters start fire over gas shortage

Date: Dec 1, 2020

Angry residents in southwest Tunisia have set fire to a provincial government building during a protest about a shortage of gas for their homes.

The demonstrators in the town of Tozeur had also been demanding that the authorities take steps to ease high unemployment in the area.

Tunisia made a transition to democracy following its Arab Spring revolution nearly 10 years ago.

But since then, its economy has stagnated and living standards have fallen.
