’Restaurant of Love’ helps feed Tunis homeless

TUNIS: On a corner by the entrance to Tunis zoo, Leila waits for a hot meal from the Tunisian capital’s “Restaurant of Love” in a cardboard shelter where she and her dogs sleep.
The 50-year-old says she has been living on the streets for more than 27 years.
“I don’t want to go to the shelter centers,” and feels safer in her makeshift abode, despite the dangers of robbery and violence on the street, she says as she fixes a plastic cover over her bed for the cold winter night.
