Police in Tunisia are reported to have fired tear gas to disperse a crowd of youths protesting against new austerity measures.
A Reuters witness said young people aged around 20 were throwing stones at police vehicles and setting fire to tyres.
The clash happened in Ettadamen, a poor district of the capital, Tunis.
President Beji Caid Essebsi had given a speech there earlier on Sunday promising to increase youth employment.
Joblessness among the young is considered a key indicator of a country’s economic prospects, and Tunisia’s stands at around 35%.
The president’s comments came as Tunisians marked the seventh anniversary of the country’s revolution. The 2011 uprising that launched the Arab Spring led to the toppling of President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali after 23 years.
Ben Ali, now in exile in Saudi Arabia, was convicted in absentia of embezzlement and misuse of public funds, and sentenced to 35 years’ imprisonment.
Several hundred people joined rallies in Tunis on Sunday at the urging of political parties and the UGTT, a prominent trade union.
Why are there protests now?
Protests are a common feature each January in Tunisia, as people commemorate the 2011 rallies.
A increase in value-added tax and social security contributions brought in at the start of January has led to heightened emotions this year.
Protesters are calling for a review of the 2018 budget, and a push to combat corruption.
Tunisia is the only country to dislodge its long-standing leader in the Arab Spring without descending into serious violence. But nine successive governments have failed to revive its flagging economy.
Both peaceful protests and nocturnal unrest have been seen across the country over the past week.
More than 800 people have been arrested, according to the interior ministry, which accuses them of theft, vandalism and violence.
