Tunisian president escapes country as tanks patrol streets

Tunisian president escapes country as tanks patrol streets 15 Jan 2011 After weeks of protests that ultimately led to turmoil in the small African country of Tunisia, the president has finally fled to Saudi Arabia with his family, leaving behind an angry nation. Tunisia is located in North Africa and has had deep diplomatic relations with the European Union, Arab League, the African Union and the United Nations. The country has, since 1987, been ruled by the authoritarian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali who has long been charged with corruption, abuse of power and violations of human rights.
