German police say a young Tunisian man is critically ill after setting himself on fire outside the Libyan embassy in Berlin.

His protest is not said to be political: he’s thought to have wanted more money in compensation for having fought in Libya’s war.

He was known to embassy staff who tipped off police before he set himself ablaze.
