World Bank outlines corruption under Ben Ali

Report shows how Tunisian president and family tailored laws to enrich themselves and supporters at public's expense.

    A report by the World Bank accuses former Tunisian leader Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his family of profiting unfairly from the country.

    They are accused of bending business rules to benefit their companies and political allies.

    The study says they pocketed around one fifth of Tunisia's private-sector profits.
