(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Thousands of people took to the streets of the Tunisian capital on Friday (July 26) after opposition politician Mohamed Brahmi was shot dead. Police fired teargas to disperse protesters. The politician's wife said Brahmi had left the house after receiving a telephone call. She heard shots and found his body lying on the ground outside as two men fled on a motorcycle. Brahmi belonged to the secular, Arab nationalist Popular Front party, whose then-leader, Chokri Belaid, was killed in a similar way on February 6. His death ignited the worst violence in Tunisia since President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali fell in 2011.
