Tunisia revolt victims seek justice

Human Rights Watch accuses former regime of using excessive force to silence protests.

    The recent protests in Tunisia may have toppled the government, but it has also exacted a heavy toll on many people.   

    The UN says that at least 219 people were killed during the month-long unrest.   

    Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra spoke to one family in Tunis, who is seeking justice for a loved one.
