Two protests - one in Tunisia and one in Israel where demonstrators died because of tear gas used to stop the protests. In Tunisia, the young man doesn't merit a name, but, the Palestinian protestor gets article after article written about her including various versions of her story.
A young man died after being struck by a tear gas grenade during a protest in a Tunisian provincial town, an Interior Ministry source said on Sunday.
French Prime Minister Francois Fillon confirmed this week that the government had authorized a shipment of tear gas grenades to Tunis on Jan. 12, two days before Tunisian President Zine el Abidine ben Ali was toppled from power.
The following are two interviews with Jawaher Abu Rahmah's mother.
“I was standing beside Jawaher on the hill that is near the place where the demonstration took place, when we were injured by a cloud of tear gas. Jawaher began to fell unwell from inhaling the gas and started to move back from the place: soon after that she vomited and collapsed. We took her to the nearest road, and from there she was evacuated by ambulance to the hospital, where she remained until her death.
After this, we went — me and my daughter [Jawaher] — close to the wall to watch the demonstration, and my daughter said, “I have to go back to the house,” and she left me. When she left me, that’s when it happened. She got tear gassed, and after that Jawaher went to the ambulance to go to Ramallah.
Finally, a report in Haaretz about how Ms. Abu-Rahma was with two teenagers when she was tear gassed.
"I met with Jawaher at the entrance to the home of Abu Hamis [an uncle]," Aslam said... She suggested we go watch the procession, which was far from us, and we moved closer to the kids who were throwing stones at the army.
