Striking Ferry Workers Block Train Traffic Between France and England for 2nd Time

About 100 striking French ferry workers have blocked train traffic between France and England for a second time in a week.
"Eurotunnel has been closed following a fire caused by MyFerryLink demonstrators outside the tunnel," Eurostar, the high-speed railway service, said on its website. "Delays to Eurostar services are likely, more information to follow."
Both freight companies and Eurostar said they were suspending train services on Tuesday after the workers blocked the tracks in the French port city of Calais. The port workers are striking for a second week over expected job cuts.
