They managed to unlock the doors of the port. Passengers of the Tariq Ibn Ziyad , a ferry bound for Algeria, who were blocked by the strikers managed to enter the port of Marseille on Thursday morning, as La Provence explains.

The passengers had been stranded since Wednesday afternoon. Passengers from the Mediterranean , Corsica Linea's boat could embark on the Tariq , while employees of the Méridionale are blocking all the boats of the company Corsica Linea because of a conflict over the delegation of public service for the Marseille-Corsica connections .
