EVENT DESCRIPTION:
All of this based on Google Translated version of the websites (mostly in French). Sites seem to be anti-censorship/activist Tunisian blogs. Many details unclear, but according to (1) Nawaat comes under attack with increasing regularity and was taken down with one of its blogs, astubal.nawaat.org, having all its content deleted. Yezzi displayed a "you are hacked" defacement on date I visited and has apparently been down for some time.
