“Tunisian opposition politician Chokri Belaid has been shot dead outside his home in the capital, Tunis.

Relatives say Mr Belaid was shot in the neck and head on his way to work.

He was a prominent secular opponent of the moderate Islamist-led government and his murder has sparked protests around the country, with police firing tear gas to disperse angry crowds.”

I wanted to know what you guys think about this, and what would you do if something similar happened in your country.

I am overwhelmed by grief, still under the shock and I just can’t believe it…

@kidvisions, “Moderates” backed by extremists, way to communicate a stance.

@kidvisions, I just mean that even if you have moderate views but get popular enough, you are bound to find you have some extreme supporters, contradictory but unavoidable.
