Thousands of Tunisians call for government resignation

'The demonstration came on Tuesday with a police official estimating that at least 40,000 people gathered in the capital’s Bardo Square. Opposition leaders reportedly said some 100,000-200,000 took part in the protest.
It is the largest demonstration in the North African country since its political crisis began two weeks ago over the murder of the leader of the left-wing Popular Movement Party, Mohamed Brahmi. The protest also marked the six-month anniversary of the assassination of leftist politician Chokri Belaid.'
