Tunisians mark post-revolution national day

Independence day holds special significance this year as first since the fall of president.

    Tunisia celebrated its National Day on Sunday, which marks the date it gained independence from France 55 years ago.

    But this year, the holiday held a special significance, with young Tunisians taking pride in bringing forth the first modern revolution of the Arab world.
