Tunis - Deposed Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali is "in a coma" in a Saudi hospital following a stroke, a family friend told AFP on Thursday.

The 74-year-old former leader slipped into a coma "two days ago" while being treated in a Jeddah hospital after suffering a stroke, according to the friend.

"He had a stroke, and his condition is serious," he said.

Ben Ali and his family fled to Saudi Arabia on January 14 after a popular uprising ended his 23-year grip on power in the north African country.
