'Cigarettes kill, matches as well,' is what this cartoon says. It is taken from the Algerian daily Al Watan, which wrote that the number of people who followed the example of Mohammed Bouazizi, the man from Sidi Bouzid in Tunesia who set fire to himself and ignited a revolution, now amounts to 30. It was not clear whether Al Watan only counted the numerous people in Algeria who did so, or included cases in other countries (in Egypt some 10 cases, one of which died, on Saturday one case in Saudi Arabia). The headline in Al Watan: 'Je brule, donc je suis' - I burn, so I exist.
