Post-uprising Tunisia still struggling

Many people say the root causes of January's revolution in their country remain unaddressed.

    It has been more than a month since Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Tunisia's president, was forced to leave office, but many people say they are yet to see the benefits of their revolution.

    Many citizens, particularly in smaller towns, say they feel disconnected from Tunis, and that the root causes of the uprising - spiralling unemployment and widespread poverty - remain unaddressed.
