Tunisia violence: Tear gas fired at Tunis protesters

Police have fired tear gas to disperse political protesters in Tunisia, following violent demonstrations outside government offices.

The protests were sparked by the killing of anti-Islamist politician Chokri Belaid.

The prime minister then announced plans for a new, technocratic government, but the ruling Islamist party Ennahda rejected the move.
