Five years of turmoil: Was the Arab Spring worth it? (part 2)
Date created : Latest update :
It's been five years. Tunisia's Ben Ali forced to flee; Egypt's Mubarak would follow three weeks later. But civil war has supplanted the Arab Spring in Libya, Syria and Yemen, a coup in Egypt has brought back the old guard, and old Sunni-Shia divides are in the headlines with the Saudi-Iranian standoff. As authorities scramble in Indonesia after suicide bombings, did a popular movement by the younger generation in the Arab world lead to ISIS striking in places like Paris, Istanbul and Jakarta?
