POLICE IN TUNISIA USE WATER CANNONS TO DISPERSE ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTEST

WARNING: Video contains violent content not suitable for all viewers. Discretion is advised.

As hundreds protesters demonstrated against the president in defiance of COVID-19 restrictions on Friday, Tunisian police used a water cannon and armour-clad riot police to disperse them.

Video from the scene of the protests shows jets of water being fired as riot police armed with shields attempted to break up the rally.

A heavy police presence prevented the protesters from gathering in Habib Bourguiba Avenue, which is the main street in central Tunis that is the traditional focal point of demonstrations – including during the 2011 revolution that brought democracy.

Opposition parties, including the moderate Islamist Ennahda, are protesting against President Kais Saied's suspension of parliament, assumption of executive power and moves to rewrite the constitution, which they call a coup.

Friday's protest goes against a ban on all indoor or outdoor gatherings the government announced on Tuesday to stop a COVID-19 wave.
