  1. Fruit dispute charges dropped

    TUNISIA: A court has dropped charges against a policewoman whose dispute with a fruit vendor sparked uprisings around the Arab world.

    State news agency TAP says that charges were dropped against Sedia Hamdi after the vendor’s family withdrew its original complaint.

    Ms Hamdi was accused of slapping vendor Mohamed Bouazizi.
    Bouazizi set himself on fire in protest.

    That prompted demonstrations against government repression, which led to protests and an eventual change of government.


  2. Democracy fight saw 846 killed

    EGYPT: At least 846 people were killed in the three-week uprising that toppled former president Hosni Mubarak, according to a government fact-finding mission.

    The figure, released on Tuesday, is more than double previous official estimates.

    Judges said that most fatalities were due to police forces “shooting protesters in the head and chest” and said they held Mr Mubarak “ultimately responsible” for the killings as his interior minister Habib el-Adly had issued orders to fire on demonstrators.
