Several demonstrated and protested following the death of a young man who recently died in a police station near the coastal resort of Hammamet in Tunisia. Tunisian police fired teargas to disperse the protestors.

According to the locals, the young man was detained by the Tunisian police after a fight between groups of youths in Barraket Essahel, south-east of Tunis. Since the reason for his sudden demise in the police station has not been officially revealed, the demonstrators blamed the security forces behind it.

According to the Defence Web, the Interior Ministry revealed in a statement that the young man fainted after reaching the police station and died despite several efforts to revive him. A judge has also been ordered to perform an investigation behind his death.

However, police in Barraket Essahel, Hammamet were not available to comment on it. According to the Tunisian activists, since Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali's regime was overthrown in 2011, there has been a slight increase in the abusive acts by the security forces.
