Hardship riots continue in Tunisia

The Tunisian government has imposed a night-time curfew in the capital, Tunis, and surrounding regions.

It comes after violent protests in several districts of the capital, with riot police firing tear gas at demonstrators.

The protesters say they are angry about rising food and fuel prices, high unemployment and corruption.
