About 100 striking French ferry workers have blocked train traffic between France and England for a second time in a week.

Both freight companies and Eurostar said they were suspending train services on Tuesday after the workers blocked the tracks in the French port city of Calais. The port workers are striking for a second week over expected job cuts.

The Eurostar train service carries about 10 million people a year across the English Channel.

An Associated Press photographer saw the striking workers swarm the tracks on Tuesday afternoon.
