Tunisians protest Clinton's visit

TUNISIA: Hundreds of Tunisians have taken to the streets in the capital, Tunis, to protest a visit by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to their country.

Wednesday, protesters gathered in Avenue Bourguiba, an epicenter of the Tunisian revolution in mid-January, and chanted anti-American slogans amid tight security presence, Reuters reported.

"No to US meddling in Tunisia's affairs," the demonstrators chanted. "Tunisia free, US out."

"We are against the visit of Hillary Clinton or of any US representative. We have never forgotten US crimes in Iraq," a protester said.

It was the second demonstration in two days against an imminent visit by Clinton, who was scheduled to arrive in Tunisia later Wednesday, after a visit to Egypt.

Clinton is the first US official to visit the North African country after the overthrow of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali by a popular revolution whose domino effect has shaken the Arab world. Press TV
