The Tunisian government is hoping a boost in aid to poorer families will help contain growing discontent over new austerity measures.

It has pledged an extra $70m after protests swept across the country.

Al Jazeera met with Iskandar Zribi, an owner of an ecofriendly hotel in Zaghouan - a town south of the capital Tunis.

Business was booming before the 2011 revolution, Zaghouane was packed with tourists, but in 2015, a gunman killed 38 tourists in the resort town of Sousse, creating a business crisis for hotel owners like Mr Zribi, who saw his revenues decline by 90 percent.

Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports from Zaghouan, Tunisia.
