TUNIS - Police in the Tunisian capital used teargas on Sunday to try to disperse hundreds of Islamists protesting against a ban on women wearing full-face veils enrolling at university, a Reuters reporter at the scene said.

The protest started in front of the main university campus in Tunis, then moved into a nearby working-class neighborhood, where the clashes with police began, said the reporter.
