Tunisia: Thousands rally on seventh anniversary of Arab Spring

Tunisians took to the streets of Tunis on Sunday to celebrate the seventh anniversary of the start of the Arab Spring.

Family members of those who died held photos during the march with injured people involved in the uprising also taking part.

A large police presence remained throughout the largely peaceful rally apart from some minor scuffles.

It has been seven years since the January 14, 2011 toppling of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali after 23 years in power.

But rising anger over price hikes and new austerity measures has seen protesters return to the streets chanting the 2011 slogans of “work, freedom, dignity”.
