Tunisian cartoonist Nadia Khiari: 'I draw to take the heat off certain situations'

A teacher at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Tunis and a cartoon fan, Nadia Khiari was so dismayed by the former Tunisian president Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali's response to the popular uprising in January 2011, she started drawing a cat commenting on current events. Her 'Willis from Tunis' series quickly became very popular.
