Revolt lingers in central Tunisia

Rebellion in Gafsa was brutally repressed, but served as forewarning of latest uprising.

    The 2008 rebellion in Tunisia's phosphate-rich Gafsa region was a warning of the uprising that eventually toppled former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's government.

    The earlier revolt in Gafsa, a town in the centre of the country, was brutally crushed by police, and news of what happened faced tough censorship. But even after the Tunisian uprising, many in Gafsa feel removed from events.

    Al Jazeera's Nazanine Moshiri reports that little in their lives has changed, and rebellion still hangs in the air.
