Rough seas force port closures in Peru

LIMA, May 2 (Reuters) - Peru, the world’s third biggest copper producer, closed its main port, Callao, and dozens of others because of rough seas, a local newspaper reported Saturday.

The ports will likely remain closed through Monday, when a storm in the South Pacific is expected to have moved north, La Republica said, citing the Navy.

The closure threatens to delay mineral shipments in Peru, a supplier of zinc, gold and silver.

Navy and port officials could not be reached for comment outside of regular working hours. (Reporting By Mitra Taj; Editing by Robin Pomeroy)
