Tunisia police crack down on anti-Saied protest

Tunisian police used pepper spray to disperse protesters and arrested several demonstrators Friday, as hundreds rallied against President Kais Saied three days before a controversial vote on a new constitution.

More than 300 people had gathered on Habib Bourguiba Avenue in central Tunis, surrounded by a heavy police presence with water cannons and riot gear, AFP reporters said.

Some protesters moved towards a police barrier near the imposing interior ministry building, where police roughly blocked their passage.
