    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, OCTOBER 16 - Hundreds of people are protesting on Wednesday in front of the headquarters in Tatouine of Sonede, Tunisia's water management agency, after water supply was cut off across the city on Tuesday during celebrations for the Feast of Sacrifice, preventing them from celebrating one of the most important Islamic festivals.

    Sonede managers said the cut off was caused by a problem with water pumps.

    Sonede's director general, Hedi Belhaj, denied any inconvenience though protests over poor water supply came from other Tunisian regions. (ANSAmed).
