Unrest in North Africa and the Middle East

June 7, 2011

In December of 2010, an unemployed street vendor in Tunisia set himself on fire to protest police harassment, setting off a historical wave of protests across North Africa and the Middle East against repressive government regimes. Activists saw the successful ousters of longtime rulers in both Egypt and Tunisia, but as the Arab Spring now moves into summer, revolts in countries such as Libya, Yemen, and Syria have bogged down into bloody quagmires. Small-scale protests continue in a handful of Arab states, while others appear to have weathered the regional storm. Roll over National Journal’s interactive map to see the roots of unrest and turning points in each country.
