Hundreds of protestors stormed the Tunisian ministry of social affairs in the capital Tunis on Monday, reported the official press agency TAP.

The army managed to evacuate people working in the ministry to prevent clashes between them and the crowds of protestors, who were demanding emergency relief aid.

The ministry announced on Saturday the opening of a regional office tasked with the distribution of emergency aid.

It is not clear if there were any people injured in the incident.
