Game Changers: 10 Historic Political Protests Worldwide
Arab Spring (Middle East & North Africa)

Beginning on Dec. 18, 2010, the Arab Spring brought about the ousting of rulers in Yemen, Libya, Egypt and Tunisia. Given the chaotic nature of these events, the death tolls have been difficult to calculate. In Egypt, where protests continue, at least 800 people were killed in the past week.
