The plane of Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali landed in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, reported Saudi TV network Al-Arabiya on Friday.

The president left Tunisia amid violent anti-government protests that drove him from power Friday after 23 years of iron-fisted rule, as anger over soaring unemployment and corruption spilled into the streets.
