Clashes as Tunisian police close Sousse mosque

Police fire tear gas at rock-hurling demonstrators

(ANSA) - Tunis, July 3 - Tunisian police and demonstrators lashed at Kalaa Kebira near the coastal resort city of Sousse after authorities closed an unauthorised mosque, police said Friday.
    The clashes late Thursday evening erupted when a crowd of worshippers hurled rocks at police who responded by firing tear gas at the throng, according to local media reports. A gunman murdered 38 foreign tourists in Sousse a week ago before being killed by security forces.
