Anti-government protests have unseated Tunisia's government, ousting President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who fled to Saudi Arabia on January 14.

And from Montreal, our reporters are following the fate of the ousted Tunisian president's brother-in-law, Belhassen Trabelsi and his family, who arrived in the city and have claimed refugee status amid calls from Tunisian authorities for his arrest.
