Political turmoil hits Tunisian economy

The country's primary sectors - agriculture and tourism - are in critical condition after months of tension and violence

    Tunisia's economy is suffering from the political turmoil that has been going on for months.

    The country does not have a lot of natural resources and it relies on its tourism and agriculture sectors to generate most of its income.

    These two important sectors have been hit hard during the protests and the country has been losing hundreds of millions of dollars.
