Arab Spring - 10 Years On

It all started a decade ago when a street vendor in Tunisia, Mohammed Bouaziz, set himself on fire after police seized his fruit cart. His death transformed into a symbol that inspired men and women all over the Middle East and North Africa to rise up against injustice, inequality and corruption. The protests soon turned into all-out revolutions against governments across the region – and it was dubbed the Arab Spring. Dictators fell, countries were reshaped and lives transformed - for better or for worse.
