More gunfire has been reported in Tunis, where the army has tightened its grip on the city centre two days after President Ben Ali was ousted by violent protests.
The former Tunisian leader’s security chief is to due appear in court on charges of stoking violence and threatening national security.
Attacks by both supporters and opponents of the ex dictator have been reported. Forces loyal to Ben Ali have been accused of looting and killing.
“Today is better,” said a motorist, referring to the volatile security situation. “Citizens defence groups are protecting their neighbourhoods, thank God!”
