Tunisia closes schools and universities following riots
prada sunglasses report,The announcement came after students marched in the capital, Tunis, to protest against police violence.

At least 14 people were killed over the weekend in the protests. They have been linked to anger over unemployment and frustrations with the ruling elite.

The president said protesters were responsible for "terrorist acts".

President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali also defended his government's record in the face of continuing protests over unemployment, and promised to create more jobs.

"The events were the work of masked gangs that attacked at night government buildings and even civilians inside their homes in a terrorist act that cannot be overlooked," he said on Monday in a speech broadcast on state television.
