Men look at newspapers displayed for sale at a booth in Tunis March 19, 2012. Tunisian journalists and secularists fear these incidents, and the roughing-up of reporters covering a protest outside the interior ministry in February, mean the interim government wants to roll back gains in freedom of expression after the uprising that ousted veteran dictator Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali. What concerns many is that legal action has tended to ignore the poor sourcing and libel that plague the profession and focus instead on issues of public morality. With the ban on criticism of the government only recently lifted, Tunisian journalists worry that they are tripping over new red lines. Picture taken March 19, 2012.
