The family of a young Tunisian who died after setting himself alight says he took his own life because of injustice endured at the hands of the state.

Neji Hefiane had been shot and injured while protesting during the 2011 revolution which ousted President Ben Ali.

His family said he did everything possible to try to get compensation but received nothing.

Mr Hefiane’s death echoes that of Mohammed Bouazizi, who died after setting himself on fire in an act that triggered the Tunisian revolution, and the uprisings that followed across the Arab world.
