The situation is far from stable, in fact it is becoming more volatile with each hour with latest reports of the Tunisian Police joining the protesters. As various observers are saying - this is only the beginning.
And yet somehow we're not hearing anything about it.
So with that in mind - I have put together running news reports from the BBC World Service and their comprehensive twice daily Newshour program from January 13-18th. And even though the news is moving very fast, and is changing by the hour, at least it's a start. I will put up more over the coming days. I would urge you to go over to the BBC site and check out their additional reports as well as Tweets from Tunis.
These reports run around three hours and I have broken them up between two players. The first player (top one) covers January 13-15 and the second player (just below), covers January 16-18. Probably best to download these and listen at your leisure - it's crammed with information and reports.
This special program runs two hours and covers the period of 6:00 am - 8:00 am (GMT) on the morning of the 17th. Like the BBC broadcast, it is broken up between two players - the one above (under the second photo) covers 6-7 am and the one below covers 7-8 am. Fascinating and highly informative material that, even if you don't speak French fluently, will give you some idea of these momentous events taking place that our MSM don't seem to want to be bothered about.
