Calm restored in mining basin after night of protest (Governor)

Calm was restored in the delegations of Mdhilla, Metlaoui and Redeyef Governorate of Gafsa, Monday, after a night of protest in the mining basin area.

The protest comes in response to the results of the fourth part of the staffing competition to recruit 1700 enforcement agents in the Gafsa Phosphate Company (CPG), local governor Mondher Laribi told TAP.

Protesters in Mdhilla, on Sunday, attempted to storm the National Guard station.

In Metlaoui, they set fire to a private car, ransacked the facade of a bank branch and forced the door of the railway office.

Four police officers were injured and several police vehicles were damaged.

Protesters had previously installed barricades, blocking traffic on several roads, which required the intervention of law enforcers. The latter used tear gas to disperse an angry crowd.
