TUNIS, Tunisia — Tunisian Interior Minister Fahrat Rajhi has suspended all activities of the country's former ruling party amid the most serious protests since the country's autocratic ruler fled into exile.

A statement said Sunday that Rajhi has suspended all activities of the party known as the RCD and intends to seek its dissolution.

The statement carried by the official TAP news agency said the suspension means there can be no more party meetings and all party offices are closed.
