Protests hit Tunisian town after man killed in police raid

Angry youth barricaded roads and clashed with police on Wednesday in the Tunisian town of Sbeitla hours after the death of a young man during a police raid, witnesses said.

Police had sought to arrest a local businessman suspected of running an illegal gambling operation but ran into resistance from his associates, triggering clashes in which the man was fatally shot with a rifle, a town official said.

An investigation was under way to determine the circumstances of his death, he added. Police and interior ministry spokespeople did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment. The youthful protesters burned tyres, closed roads and threw stones at police, who responded with tear gas volleys that dispersed the crowd, witnesses said.
