Tunisian authorities announced imposing month-long curfew from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sky News reported on Monday.
The curfew announcement comes amid violent protests after President Kais Saied ousted the government and suspended parliament with help from the army.
Accordingly, this move sparked protests in Tunisia, where the biggest political party decried it as a “coup”.
In the same Vein, France has called for respect of the rule of law in Tunisia as quickly as possible, urging all political parties to refrain from violence.
Moreover, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the United States is concerned about developments in Tunisia and urged calm in the country.
Psaki added that the United States is in touch at a senior level with Tunisian leaders to learn more, noting that the White House has not made a determination on whether it was a coup.
