World Briefing / SPAIN

Police lift strikers' blockades

June 12, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Spain got tough with striking truckers who have disrupted food and fuel supplies, deploying riot police to lift blockades of a border crossing with France and a major highway outside Madrid, and making dozens of arrests.

But unions representing the strikers vowed to continue the protests over rising fuel prices.

The auto industry warned that if the stoppage continues, production will halt because parts are not reaching factories.
