TUNIS, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Tunisia’s government on Monday ordered the indefinite closure of all schools and universities in response to a wave of unrest, the official news agency reported.

“Following violence in universities and lycees, and while awaiting an investigation to establish who was responsible for inciting students, we have decided to stop all the lessons in all educational establishments ... from tomorrow, Tuesday, until further notice,” Tunisia’s TAP news agency quoted the Education Ministry as saying.
