The Story of Mohammed Bouazizi

This article from Al-Jazeera is the most detailed article I have found regarding the life of Mohamed Bouazizi. Bouazizi is the man who set himself on fire, and thus started a revolution not only in Tunisia, but across North Africa and the Middle East. This is the first story I have found that is completely dedicated to telling his story and how he was the man behind the Arab Spring. It details his early life, as well as what caused Bouazizi to light himself on fire. The article titled, The Tragic Life of a Street Vendor, is worth reading to understand the reasoning behind Bouazizi’s actions, and understanding the beginnings of the revolution.
