In Tunisia, hundreds of protesters clashed with police in working-class neighborhoods of the capital Tunis on Saturday, capping days of demonstrations demanding an end to police brutality. The protests erupted after video emerged showing police officers in civilian clothes stripping and viciously beating a young man. That incident came just a day after the funeral of another man who, his family says, was beaten to death by police. Protesters say Tunisia has yet to see meaningful police reform 10 years after the revolution that toppled longtime dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
