Tunisian police have targeted hundreds of protesters, who had gathered in the capital for a fourth day of anti-government rallies, with tear gas.
Sunday's protest comes one day after authorities imposed an overnight curfew in the capital and its surrounding areas.
Sources say riot police clashed with protesters and attacked the media covering the event in central Tunis.
"The police reaction is too extreme against the people. It's true there are criminals among the protesters, but the reaction is still too cruel. It is a return to the days of Ben Ali," Reuters quoted a protester as saying.'
