the deadly vicious circle in Tunisia

A bit more than two years after the revolution spawned by a Tunisian street vendor, Mohamed Bouazizi, who set himself afire because he was being harassed by the government, the authorities have cracked down even more strenuously on street selling. Now, another street hawker has paid the price. Adel Khazri, a 27-year-old vendor in Tunis who set himself on fire yesterday because the police would not let him sell cigarettes on the street, died in the hospital this morning. Tunisialive has the sad details.
