TUNIS - Tunisian supporters of an opposition party whose votes were discounted in a provincial town for irregularities set the mayor's office on fire in protest on Thursday, witnesses said.

Tunisian police also used tear gas to disperse hundreds of protesters in Sidi Bouzid who backed the Popular List party run by businessman Hachmi Hamdi.

Election officials earlier said they were canceling seats won by Hamdi's party in six electoral districts because of campaign finance violations. The party won many votes in Sidi Bouzid.
