(TAP) - Several young people in the delegation of Souk Lahad (governorate of Kebili) have set fire to the headquarters of the delegation as well as the official residence of the local delegate.

Angry protesters also blocked the road to protest the "suspicious" death of two young people in the region who died in a shipwreck after a collision with a Navy ship off Kerkennah (governorate of Sfax) on Sunday.

The protesters are calling for an investigation into the causes of the accident and visits by government officials to discuss ways to boost development in the region.

The police intervened to disperse protesters by using tear gas.
