Tunisian women hold photographs of their sons outside the Justice Ministry, where protesters are gathered to demand the release of those imprisoned by the regime of ousted leader Zine El Abidine Ben Ali on suspicions of terrorism, in Tunis. More than a week after Prime Minister Mohamed Ghannouchi took the reins of an interim coalition following the overthrow of Ben Ali. The poster reads, "The suffering of the prisoners of conscience and their families in Tunisia = living witnesses to the death of freedom and the counterfeit democracy."
