Tunisia: Nearly 800 arrested as financial protests rage on

Hundreds gathered outside city hall in Tunis on Saturday as protests over new financial laws continued.

Protesters held anti-government banners and shouted through megaphones as they voiced the anger at the plans that would raise taxes and the price of basic goods.

Organisers called for nationwide protests against the law urging people to continue to rally until the government reneges on its decision.

The protests have raged for nearly one week and have seen more than 770 arrested by police.

Protests are expected to continue through January 14 which will mark the anniversary of the removal of former Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali from government.
