Tunisia in revolt: State violence during anti-government protests
On 14 January 2011, following a month of spiralling anti-government protests across Tunisia, President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali secretly fled the country, ending 23 years of corrupt, complacent and repressive rule. This report documents many cases of protesters and bystanders killed and injured by the security forces, and includes many moving testimonies. It calls on the new government to fully investigate the abuses and provide an adequate remedy, including justice and reparation, to victims and their families.
