More than 3,000 demonstrators gathered on Sunday on Kasbah square, calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Mohammed Ghannouchi and the establishment of a parliamentary system in the country.

The demonstrators also gathered for a while before the French embassy.

Both the march and the sit-in were peaceful, however, the army fired shots in the air to prevent the crowd from occupying the government square.
