Violent clashes continue across countries in North Africa as fury mounts against inflation and living conditions.
At least four people were shot dead and six others seriously wounded late Saturday when security forces clashed with protesters in central Tunisia.
In Algeria, three people were reported dead with more than 400 injured.
The death toll is increasing and the governments are struggling to find ways to calm tensions. Armies have been sent to control the streets, and live ammunition have been used against protesters.
Why are the EU and US watching the unfolding tragedy in North Africa with little or no reaction?
