The youth of Tunisia have started protesting violently in the streets of cities- from the capital, Tunis to the cities of Gafsa, Sousse, Kasserine and Monastir. The protests has triggered fear of a repeat of the 2011 Arab Spring revolutions among the authorities and army has been deployed. Unemployment and poor economic outlook are possible reasons for the demonstrations. Nearly 1/3rd of the Tunisian youth are unemployed and 1/5th of the country lives below the poverty line.
