Somber Tunisia marks 10 years since revolution in lockdown

TUNIS – Tunisia on Thursday commemorates the 10th anniversary since the flight into exile of iron-fisted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, pushed from power in a popular revolt that foreshadowed strife and civil war in the region, known as the Arab Spring.

But there will be no festive celebrations marking the revolution in this North African nation, which was ordered into lockdown to contain the coronavirus.The tree-lined Avenue Bourguiba, the main artery in the capital city of Tunis, which became a center of the uprising, may well be deserted if citizens respect orders to stay home.
