The time for dictatorships is over

'Two more men have set themselves on fire in Egypt and Mauritania today, raising to six the number of self-immolation attempts apparently influenced by a similar action in Tunisia that helped trigger a popular uprising.

At least four of the incidents took place in a provincial town in Algeria, Reuters reports.

"Tunisia is now the model to follow for all Arabs. The time for dictators and dictatorships is over," said Mohamed Lagab, political analyst and teacher of political science at Algiers University, according to Reuters.'
