Tunisian President Flees Amid Turmoil

Tunisia's President Zein al Abidine Ben Ali left the country Friday after more than a month of increasingly violent demonstrations against his rule.� In a nationwide address on Thursday, the president tried to calm the situation by promising long-sought reforms, but to no avail as the protests intensified with tens of thousands of people in the streets of Tunis, demanding his departure.
