TUNIS - Tunisian police used tear gas on Thursday to disperse hundreds of people protesting in the provincial town of Sidi Bouzid against the elimination of a party from the North African country's election, witnesses told Reuters.

Election officials earlier said they were cancelling seats won by the Popular List party, led by businessman Hachmi Hamdi, in six electoral districts because of campaign finance violations. The party won many votes in Sidi Bouzid.
