Tunisia Crackdown

FILE – In this Feb. 17, 2012 photo, a Tunisian holds a flag reading in Arabic, “There is no God only the God, and Mohammed is his prophet” during a demonstration in Tunis. Mosques are being closed down, local organizations banned and at least 1,000 have been arrested as Tunisia carries out a wide-ranging crackdown against those suspected of sympathizing with radical Islamists. While still one of the only democracies to emerge from the Arab Spring uprisings, Tunisia’s battle against terrorism is raising fears that it might be returning to its bad old days of political repression.
