FILE - In this file photo dated Monday, March 31, 2014, Tunisian women demonstrate outside a courthouse where three police officers face charges of rape of a 27-year-old woman, in Tunis, Tunisia. The 27-year-old woman says three police officers stopped her in a car in September, and one of them held her fiance back while the other two raped her.  The police officers deny wrongdoing, and allege the couple had been engaged in "immoral" behavior. Posters read: at left, 'State Crime, State Rape', and at right 'Rape is right when police is guilty'. On Sunday, Tunisians are set to vote in parliamentary elections that will nearly complete the democratic transition begun by the revolution, but many fear the bad old ways are creeping back. Just on Sept. 27 and Oct. 3, two more young men died in police custody under suspicious circumstances. (AP Photo/Aimen Zine, File)
