Carthage Cement, Ennakl Resume Trading Today, Assabah Reports

Trading of Carthage Cement and Ennakl Automobiles shares not owned by relatives of ousted Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali will resume today, Assabah reported.

The stock market, which closed on Jan. 17, three days after Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia, reopened yesterday, the newspaper said, citing Adel Karar, the chairman of the stockbrokers association.

The transition government now running the North African nation has ordered a freeze on the assets of Ben Ali’s family.
