At least 86 people have been arrested after Salafi Muslims and others clashed with police in Tunis over an art exhibition many say insults Islam.

Protesters blocked streets and set tyres alight on Monday night in the working class Ettadamen and Sidi Hussein districts of the capital, hurling petrol bombs at police in some of the worst confrontations the city has seen since last year’s revolt…

The work that appears to have caused the most fury and polarised Tunisians spelt out the name of God using insects.

A petrol bomb is possibly the most sincere form of art criticism.
