TUNIS, Tunisia — Tunisian authorities have temporarily banned vehicle and pedestrian traffic on the capital's central boulevard after a new outbreak of clashes between police and stone-throwing protesters.

Police and troops backed by tanks deployed in Tunis as hundreds of youths rallied on Saturday to protest against the North African country's interim government — fearing it has hijacked Tunisia's revolution.
