    After Tunisia's former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his family members fled the country, looters ransacked many of the villas they owned.

    Many Tunisians despise their former president and his family for abusing their power and enriching themselves.

    Some estimates suggest that during Ben Ali's two decades in power, the ex-president and his extended family stole at least $20 billion from the country, an equivalent to twice Tunisia's national budget.

    Al Jazeera's Nazanine Moshiri reports on the anger of the Tunisian people towards their former rulers.
