A Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office spokesperson said:

The UK is closely monitoring the situation in Tunisia.

We believe that the solution to Tunisia’s current challenges can only be achieved through the principles of democracy, transparency, human rights, and free speech.

We call on all parties to uphold Tunisia’s reputation as a tolerant and open society and to protect the democratic gains of the 2011 revolution.
