Following the revolution in Tunisia, I have begun updating theTunisia section here on al-bab. Links to several historically interesting documents had stopped working because of the deletion of websites belonging to the old regime. I have retrieved some of them through the Wayback archive and posted them directly on to the site. They include Ben Ali's speech in 1987 when he deposed President Bourguiba, and his ludicrous victory speechin 1999 when he was re-elected with an incredible 99.44% of the vote.
Readers are welcome to suggest other items that should be included.
