  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Arab Spring 10 years on: Looking at what is left of the Jasmine Revolution” – below is their description.

    #Tunisia on Thursday marked 10 years since a local fruit and vegetable seller set himself ablaze in protest after police took his cart, an act that enraged the country and snowballed into the #revolution that toppled the North African nation’s autocratic leader months later and triggered the #ArabSpring. The economically troubled region of Sidi Bouzid in central Tunisia where the self-immolation took place is still waiting — a decade later — to reap rewards from the uprising. FRANCE 24’s International Affairs Philip Turle tells us more.
