Police broke up a gathering of about 100 artists in the centre of the city, and last night they fired tear gas and shot into the air to disperse demonstrators when they smashed shops and set fire to a bus, two cars, a local government office, and a bank in the suburbs of Ettadem.
The crowd chanted, "We are not afraid, we are not afraid, we are afraid only of God."
Earlier in the day, as more footage emerged of protests, responses by security forces, and the tearing down of President Ben Ali's image, discussion focused on the death toll. Witnesses and activists put the weekend's number of dead at more than 50, and the Government edged up its official tally to 21 last night.
The BBC's flagship domestic radio programme, Today, finally noticed the situation this morning with a four-minute interview (at the 55-minute mark) with correspondent Jon Leyne. He highlighted "unemployment" as the cause of the crisis, although he added that people had been "shocked" by the scale of the Government's response. The interview closed with the provocative question, "If Ben Ali falls, what happens next?"
The Economist writes on similar lines, "It is not clear where Tunisia’s winter of discontent is heading, but it has gone beyond economic grievances and shows no sign of abating," but it slips in this provocative historical reference:
Some Tunisians hope that Mr Ben Ali will go the way of Nicolae Ceausescu, the Romanian dictator abandoned by his military after mass protests.
As well as warning shots, the police fired tear gas grenades to try to force people back.
Tunisia has been hit by a series of riots by protesters saying they want action to create more jobs and better living conditions.
The army had been deployed in the most restive towns on Tuesday and schools and universities closed after a weekend of violence.
