scent of Tunisia’s “jasmine revolution"

 Mohammed Bouazizi, 26, distraught when police confiscated his unlicensed produce stand, set himself on fire on Dec. 17 and died on Jan. 3. As a sequel to expulsion of Tunis dictator Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali after a 29-day popular uprising against unemployment, and police brutality,  the Husni Mubarak regime of Egypt is under  fire. The rage seems to spread to the whole of the Arab world.
