Politicians and opposition figures forged a caretaker government Monday, days after the popular overthrow of Tunisia's longtime president, as a clearer picture emerged of the army's role in the largely peaceful handover of power.
The popular protests in Tunisia that have caused upheaval in the government were sparked by Mohamed Bouazizi, a 26-year-old unemployed college graduate, who set himself on fire in protest. He later died. Now, reports are coming in from other countries in the region -- Egypt, Algeria, and Mauritania -- that other demonstrators are turning to self-immolation.
It must be some cause for relief that the revolution – and make no mistake, it was a revolution – that has taken place in Tunisia was not more protracted than it was, nor more costly in civilian lives. To be sure, the confrontations were violent while they lasted, with the authorities, initially, giving no quarter.
Tunisian security forces fought a string of gun battles with armed men in and around the capital as politicians scrambled to form a new government. Four German nationals have reportedly been arrested. DW-WORLD.DE: German and European news, analysis and multimedia from Deutsche Welle - in 30 languages

Tunisia's prime minister announced an interim government that will include members of the opposition but also of the old regime. Hundreds of Tunisians took to the capital's streets again Monday in protest.
The reforms that are made on time do not weaken the ruling power, they strengthen it and reduce potency of the revolutionary spirit. Former President Ben Ali would have probably benefited from this bit of wisdom from one of the fathers of the Italian union, Count Cavour. This nugget of political wisdom would have been much more helpful to the survival of Ben Ali's regime than any technical advice on security matters. When the inertia is the only alternative to chaos and when contempt, lies, corruption, violence are they only answers to popular frustration, there is a greater risk of pushing people to despair. This despair leads to revolution when the walls of fear start falling.
