Protesters have taken to Tunisia's streets to insist the transitional
government of Hamad Jebali fulfill the demands of the January 14 revolution
that overthrew dictator Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali.

The regional city of Siliana, located 130 kilometres south-west of the
capital Tunis, was rocked by days of protests over the lack of investment
and jobs in the region.
