This is an undated picture of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali provide by ImageChina. The former Tunisian president fled his country on January 14, capitulating after a month of mounting protests calling for an end to his 23 years of authoritarian rule. Ben Ali was appointed Prime Minister in October 1987, and he assumed the Presidency on 7 November 1987 in a bloodless coup d’état that ousted President Habib Bourguiba. Ben Ali and his wife were sentenced by the interim Tunisian government in absentia to 35 years in prison on 20 June 2011.
