Thick black smoke rises up from a burning barricade set out in the middle of the street. In the neighborhood of Souihel, youth have gathered to protest following the disappearance of a boat and its passengers at the end of September. The boat departed from Zarzis and was to make its way towards Italy. « A number of people who were from here died », reports Ahmed (a pseudonym), who is stopped on his bike. « They were our friends », he laments.
