7:41 pm on 22 July 2014

An agreement has been reached in Wallis and Futuna to end an 18-day public sector strike.

The dispute has been over the status of territorial officials in the service of the French state.

The strikers blocked access to the administration building and the territorial assembly.

After several days of talks, an accord was reached and a commission has been set up to revise the relevant texts.

Barricades have been lifted.
