Tunisian protesters are expected to hold a general strike following the largest street protests since the country's revolution in 2011.

The demonstrations were provoked by the assassination of Chokri Belaid, the head of the Democratic Patriots party. His widow has laid the blame for his killing on the moderate Islamist Ennahda party that leads the interim government.
