Live coverage as Tunisians gather for slain opposition leader's funeral

  • Tens of thousands of Tunisians are gathering Friday for the funeral of Chokri Belaid, a leftist opposition politician who was assassinated earlier this week. Belaid's killing sparked days of anti-government rioting, setting off the worst crisis in the country since the 2011 revolution that overthrew its long-ruling dictator and inspired the Arab Spring.

    The Globe's Eric Reguly (@ereguly) was at the funeral, and tweeted his live updates below. Foreign affairs specialist Affan Chowdhry contributed to the blog from our Toronto newsroom.
