The government has blamed ultra-conservative Islamists
known as Salafists for the violence, in which police stations were set on fire
but the Salafists have denied being involved in the rampage.

of emergency exists and a curfew has been imposed in the greater Tunis area,
including in the suburbs of Ben Arous, Ariana and Manouba, and the towns of
Sousse, Monastir, Jendouba and Ben Guerdane.
"The curfew hours are 2100 to 0500. Additional
curfews or other temporary movement restrictions may be imposed or changed with
