TUNIS - Tunisian police used tear gas on Friday to try to break up a protest by several thousand Islamists, some of whom were trying to force their way into the prime minister's office in the center of the capital, a Reuters reporter at the scene said.

The protesters, who were shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) and demanding the imposition of Islamic law in Tunisia, responded by throwing stones at police.
