Port workers, pacifists protest

20 May, 12:21

    (ANSAmed) - Genoa, May 20 - A cargo flying the Saudi flag and transporting weapons has docked in Genoa despite a protest by port workers over fears the arms could be used by Saudi Arabia against civilians in Yemen's war.

    Operations to load the ship, however, have been halted due to talks between unions and terminal authorities over the material that will be loaded in Genoa, including a type of generator that could be used for war purposes.

    A meeting with unions has been scheduled at the prefect's office. (ANSAmed).
