Suicide sparked Tunisia revolution

Tunisia's political upheaval began after a frustrated young man set himself on fire in protest.

    Tunisia's political upheaval began last month after a young vendor set himself on fire after police confiscated the fruits and vegetables he sold.

    The act of self-immolation sparked a series of protests and riots that ultimately led to the end of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's 23-year rule.

    Al Jazeera's Ayman Mohyeldin travelled to the man's hometown of Sidi Bouzid for this exclusive report.
