TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — A Tunisian court has dissolved the party of longtime autocratic President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali who was ousted in a popular revolt.
The court in the capital Tunis formally announced the end of the Constitutional Democratic Rally, or RCD, on Wednesday.
Pro-democracy activists have demanded the party's dismantling since Ben Ali was ousted after weeks of protests Jan. 14. The protests led to uprisings across the Arab world.
