The death of a Tunisian poet

Tunisia's suicide rate has risen in recent years. Nidhal Gharibi was 32 when he took his own life.

Of the Tunisians who responded to a BBC News Arabic survey of the Middle East and North Africa, four in every 10 said they were depressed. Only Iraqis are more likely to report feeling depressed across the 10 countries, plus the Palestinian territories, that were surveyed.
