There are still security concerns in Tunisia, even though the overnight curfew has been lifted in the capital Tunis.

Some citizens are concerned and remain sceptical about the current government, despite Ben Ali having left the country.

Locals man barricades to protect their property, the army continues to patrol the streets, and there are reports of renewed clashes between protesters and security forces.
