Tunisia's once-feared police, who carried out the repressive policies of their now exiled president, were joining forces with protesters on Saturday as they marched through the streets of the capital. Some non-uniformed officers, wearing red armbands to distinguish themselves from civilians, led a protest in Tunis on Saturday to call for the creation of a police union and greater rights and pay. Saturday's development was significant because, while the army is respected, police were feared during the 23-year reign of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who fled eight days ago to Saudi Arabia after a month of deadly riots around the country.
