TUNIS (Reuters) - All flights to and from Tunisia will be canceled on Friday after a general strike was called by the main labor organization in protest at the killing of a prominent opposition figure, the civil aviation office said.

"All flights to and from Tunisia will be canceled tomorrow because the workers at the airport responded to the calling of the general strike", a spokesman said.
