Can Tunisia buck the trend?

Could the nation that three years ago today witnessed the first spark of the Arab Spring… now be its last hope? It's been a rollercoaster ride for Tunisia since a desperate street vendor in sleepy Sidi Bouzid set himself alight to protest the relentless shakedowns of the police.

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christopher Davis
