People shout slogans in solidarity with residents of Sidi Bouzid during a demonstration on Dec. 27, 2010, in Tunis. The Arab Spring began that month in Tunisia, following the self-immolation of a Sidi Bouzid street vendor. Riots and demonstrations followed against unemployment and poor living conditions.

People shout slogans to show their solidarity with the residents of Sidi Bouzid during a demonstration on December 27, 2010 in Tunis. One person was killed and others injured when Tunisia’s National Guard members opened fire on angry protesters in the town of Menzel Bouzaiene over the weekend. The death came as riots and demonstrations against unemployment and poor living conditions entered their ninth day in Sidi Bouzid. Unrest scattered across the region after the suicide attempts of two young persons last week. AFP PHOTO / FETHI BELAID (Photo credit should read FETHI BELAID/AFP via Getty Images)
