Tunisia villagers unhappy with pace of change

Many villagers say their situation has not changed since the fall of President Zine Al Abidine Ben Ali.



    The economic cost of the revolution in Tunisia has been high.

    Direct foreign investment has dropped by a quarter since the fall of President Zine Al Abidine Ben Ali in January. Income from tourism has fallen by half.

    But as Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna reports from Kairouan province in Tunisia, it is the rural areas that have been hit the hardest.
