Tunisia's ousted leader says his trial is a sham

TUNIS - Tunisia's ousted leader Zine Abidine Ben Ali said his trial in absentia, which starts on Monday, is an attempt by the country's new rulers to distract attention from their failure to restore stability.
Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia on Jan. 14 after a popular uprising against his 23-year rule. Tunisia's revolution inspired uprisings in other parts of the Arab world, including a revolt in Egypt that forced out that country's long-standing leader.
