Thousands protest in Tunisia against president’s rule


              Security forces stand guard as Tunisians gather during a protest against Tunisian President Kais Saied in downtown Tunis, Tunisia, Saturday Jan. 14, 2023. Tunisians mark 12 years since Tunisian protesters unleashed Arab Spring uprisings around the region. The protest comes after disastrous parliamentary elections last month in which just 11% of voters cast ballots. It also comes as the country is going through a major economic crisis, with inflation and joblessness on the rise. (AP Photo/Hassene Dridi)
