Inside Story – Riots in North Africa go unheeded

Violent clashes continue across countries in North Africa as fury mounts against inflation and living conditions.

At least four people were shot dead and six others seriously wounded late Saturday when security forces clashed with protesters in central Tunisia.

While in Algeria, three people were reported dead with over 400 injured.

The death toll is increasing and the governments are struggling to find ways to calm tensions. Armies have been sent to control the streets, and live ammunition have been used against protesters.

While the death toll in Algeria and Tunisia mount due to ongoing riots, why are the EU and US largely ignoring it?
