Tunisia has extended the quota system for drinking water and a ban of use in agriculture until further notice, the agriculture ministry said on Saturday, in response to a drought that has lasted five years.

In March, the North African country began cutting off water at night and banned its use in agriculture, a decision that Tunisia had said would continue until September 30.

It has also banned the use of drinking water to wash cars, water green areas and clean streets and public places.
