Sit-in protests halt deliveries
Tunisias state-run phosphate miner, Gafsa Phosphate, has suspended production due to protests that stopped deliveries.
Dozens of unemployed people who want jobs are disrupting production and transfer of phosphate by train, company official Ali Houchati told the UK news agency Reuters.
The sit-ins forced us to stop production and suspend all financial transactions of the Gafsa Phosphate Company.
Tunisia has suffered repeated sit-ins and demonstrations since its uprising in 2011.
