Video of clashes with police and crowd control in Tunisia Wednesday.

Tunisian police on Wednesday fired tear gas at hundreds of protesters in the capital who are pressuring the interim government to get rid of allies of ousted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. The clashes broke out in front of the prime minister’s office as the caretaker government prepared to announce adjustments to its line-up. Acrid clouds of tear gas engulfed hundreds of protesters, and some demonstrators responded by throwing stones at police.
