Tunisia has reached a deal with strikers who have disrupted gas production by the British energy company Petrofac for months. The agreement involves employing local youths and creating a development fund amid deep recession and rising joblessness in the northern African country. The British energy company has demanded guarantees its production would not be disrupted. Adnen Chaouachi reports from Tunis.
