No Water At Night As Tunisia Suffers Shortage

Drinking water supplies are being cut off at night in cities across Tunisia in a bid to maintain reserves in the country.

A severe drought is being blamed for the shortage, along with poor water management and faulty infrastructure.

In some areas, as much as 50% of water is lost before reaching the tap.

Correspondents say the decision to limit water supplies will add to existing public anger about inflation and inadequate public services.
