Tunisia protesters torch ruling party office

Several hundred protesters Wednesday set fire to the office of Tunisia's ruling Islamist party in the neglected Gafsa region, one of several areas on general strike, an AFP journalist reported.

The demonstrators attacked the Ennahda party's headquarters in Gafsa, central Tunisia, after trying to break into the regional governor's office, where they were dispersed by police.
