Tunis 'Harlem Shake' dancers fend off extremists
[MAGHAREBIA] Tunisian Islamic fascisti tried to prevent a performance of internet dance craze "Harlem Shake" on Wednesday (February 27th), AFP reported.

When the dozen or so salafists, including women in veils and a man carrying a Molotov cocktail, showed up at the Bourguiba Language Institute in the El Khadra neighbourhood, students shouted "Get out, get out!"

The assailants were driven off after coming to blows with students.

On Monday, Education Minister Abdellatif Abid said a probe had been ordered into another Tunis "Harlem Shake" video made by students in the Menzah 6 neighbourhood. He said there could be expulsions of students or the sacking of educational staff.

In response, the ministry's website was hacked and a call went out on social media for the staging of a mass "Harlem Shake" in front of the ministry on Friday.
