Social unrest breaks out in Tunisia. The common denominator seems to be lack of opportunity coupled with repressive and unaccountable governments.

Social unrest is accelerating financial unraveling in the affected countries, which is only going to exacerbate popular disaffection.

Damascus: The Syrian lira seems to be falling from one pitfall to another, trading at almost 790 SP to the US dollar.

This has caused unprecedented havoc in Syria, as the population’s already razor-thin savings lose yet another chunk of their value, after nearly nine years of war.

Many analysts expect it to cross the 1,000 SP benchmark within the next few months, although in September, it stood at just above 600 SP to the US dollar.

This is the worst–and quickest—devaluation ever in the modern history of Syria, and it is largely linked to what is happening in neighbouring Lebanon.

Iraq must have the most inept arsonists on the planet. Seriously, guys - third attempt to burn down the Iranian consulate in Najaf?
