Postcards from the Arab uprisings 4

Help

A desperate act by a young, unemployed, Tunisian man in December 2010 triggered a series of protests that saw the country's president deposed after 23 years and inspired pro-democracy activists across the Arab world.

Two years on from the start of the so-called Arab uprisings, and with the eyes of the world still on the conflict in Syria, BBC News is broadcasting a week of reports on where the region stands now.

In the fourth of a series of video postcards, people from Egypt, Yemen and Algeria talk about why they think the events have been important.
