Tunisia reduces overnight curfew

TUNISIA reduced its night curfew yesterday, a day after President Kais Saied requested a review of the measure to avoid the loss of thousands of jobs in the month of Ramadan.

”The curfew will start 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.,” Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi told reporters, reducing it from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Mechichi’s government has announced tougher curfew restrictions on Wednesday to combat a surge in new coronavirus cases.
