Protesters block Ecopetrol port terminal

Protesters have blocked access to Colombia's Coveñas port, and hurled burning debris into the installations, according to state oil firm Ecopetrol.

The protests began Sunday night and are in response to the public employment system (SPE), a recently launched government-run recruitment agency. Protesters also blocked the Coveñas-Montería highway, Ecopetrol said, condemning the aggression.

The company said it will lodge a criminal complaint and described the SPE as a transparent method of recruitment that guarantees fairness to candidates seeking jobs.

The protests have not affected the maritime terminal's operations, it added.
