Tunisia: Sixtieth Anniversary of Farhat Hached's Assassination - UGTT March Disturbed

Tunis — The march staged by the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT), on Tuesday at the Kasbah in Tunis, on the occasion of commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Farhat Hached's assassination, was disturbed by stone throwing.

People, mainly members of the Revolution Protection League, came in large numbers, attempted to disrupt the march led by UGTT secretary-general Houcine Abassi himself and members of the labour union's executive bureau, and shouted insults and various accusations at the marchers.
