Tunisia President Kais Saied: Has he prevented breakdown or seized authoritarian power?

In a World View episode with South Africa’s Radio Islam, I discuss issues including Tuesday’s attempted hijacking of the Asphalt Princess in the Gulf of Oman; the campaign against Coronavirus vaccine hesitancy; and President Kais Saied’s takeover of power in Tunisia.

I also discuss the deadly crackdown of the Belarus regime of Alexander Lukashenko, amid the asylum claim of Olympic sprinter Krystsina Tsimanouskaya and the suspected murder of leading activist Vitaly Shishov on Monday, and the situation in Afghanistan as US military personnel withdraw.
