"Tunisian authorities are trying former President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali in absentia Tuesday for his alleged role in the death of protesters in January 2011. Ben Ali was ousted in the first uprising of last year's Arab Spring and fled the country. A military tribunal is hearing the case of the former president and dozens of former senior officials."
