Thousands of Tunisian protesters on Sunday flooded the streets of Tunis, the capital city, on the seventh anniversary of the Arab Spring revolution. The anniversary comes amid more than a week of protests that began after the government hiked taxes on basic goods.
The Tunisian government proposed aid packages to the poor in a bid to quell the unrest but has not offered a long-term solution to the country’s economic crisis.
