Riot police fired teargas at protesters in the Tunisian capital Tunis as thousands massed following the killing of opposition politician Mohamed Brahmi.
Brahmi, who was member of parliament, was shot dead in front of his house in the capital on Thursday morning. His death brought thousands onto the streets, with hundreds clashing with police outside the interior ministry headquarters.
Brahmi, 58, was a member of the People Movement Party, which is part of the same coalition as Chokri Belaid, another prominent politician who was assassinated in February.
