Protesters take cover from police during clashes in Siliana, northwest of Tunis December 1, 2012. Tunisian security forces fired tear gas and live rounds in the air on Saturday to try to disperse several thousand protesters in the town that has seen days of clashes this week over economic problems in the North African state.
