Condolences Zouhair Yahyaoui

Mona sent us today mourning Zouhair Yahyaoui, a Tunisian dissident, who died at the age of 36, and founded a satirical website TuneZine. He was imprisoned for 18 months in 2002, after he published opposition material on his site. He went on hunger strike a number of times and supporters claimed he was tortured (Source: BBC).

People really die for this.
