Tunisian man sets himself on fire in Glarus

A 45-year-old Tunisian man threatened with expulsion from Switzerland set himself on fire yesterday at a bus stop in the town of Netstal, Canton Glarus.

He was seen dousing himself in petrol and setting himself alight by two witnesses who came to his aid.

He was taken by helicopter to hospital in Zurich where he remains in a critical condition.

The man's papers were reportedly not in order and he risked being expelled from the country.
