Tunisia: Strike Begins In 4 Regions

Workers in four Tunisian regions, Sidi Bouzid, Kasserine, Gafsa and Sfax, went on strike Dec. 6 amid rising tensions with Ennahda, Tunisia's ruling mainstream Islamist party, AFP reported. Most main private and public companies closed in the four regions, and demonstrations are expected to take place later in the day. A nationwide general strike has been called for Dec. 13 to denounce an attack on a union headquarters the union says was carried out by Islamist militants close to Ennahda. The party is struggling to balance between its secular coalition partners and Salafists.
