Tunisian protests: Tunis marchers urge Ben Ali to go

BBC News is reporting the latest news on the ever expanding protests.  Thirteen people were killed overnight during protests which are calling for Tunisian President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali to step down immediately.  Having governed since 1987, Ben Ali stated Thursday he would step down in 2014.  The United Kingdom, France, and the United States are urging all non-essential travel to Tunisia to cease.

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: BBC News has the latest update on the situation in Tunisia.

Tunisia’s government has been dismissed and parliament dissolved after weeks of protests over corruption, unemployment and high food prices, official sources say.
