ATTAWAPISKAT, Ont. — De Beers officials are getting fed up with repeated illegal blockades of the winter road leading to the Victor diamond mine.

Since the road opened 13 days ago, blockades have prevented supplies and equipment from being delivered for nine days.

After resolving a blockade that began early last week, another one started up this week.
