Tunisia ben ali arab spring

A Tunisian government employee carries a picture of ex-president Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, who resigned from office after weeks of protests against poverty and corruption in January, igniting the "Arab Spring." Ben Ali, who was convicted of charges on numerous grounds, fled to Saudi Arabia. He was in power since 1987.
