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.
