Tunisians frustrated over lack of change

The protests are over, but the future is uncertain as so many are desperate for serious action.

    Tunisia's government is facing growing pressure over record high unemployment.

    Residents unhappy with falling living standards have staged a week of protests in the town of Siliana.

    A deal has been reached with the government to defuse tension and solve the problems of the local population, but the poor, unemployed young protesters want to see actions rather than words.
