Tunisia announced Friday a nighttime curfew across the country after several days of social unrest that has led to street protests and clashes.

"In light of these attacks against public and private property, and given that the continuation of these acts represents a danger to the security of citizens, it was decided to declare a curfew across Tunisia from 20:00 to 05:00," the interior ministry said.
